After a long time of no new posts being put up I thought it would be a good idea to make a big useful one that will help out museum managers who are struggling with building a community around their museums. As I’ve already mentioned elsewhere, museums seem to be having lower and lower number of visitors and if you are a museum manager that’s struggling with similar issues, todays post will help you out.
Useful museum manage resources – Lecture by Valerie Hannon
This lecture I found over at MuseumQuestions.com and it might not be specific to museums, but the lecturer Valerie Hannon still covers a lot of good points on how to build an educational community. When you think about it, that’s what people who frequent technological museums are, a educational community of people who want to learn. That’s at least what museum community is supposed to be.
If you don’t know who Valerie Hannon is, she is a London based education innovator, a consultant who has been involved with the education industry for a great number of years and who seeks to make radical changes to make education more interesting to people.
