In January I will be teaching a one week intensive course for the Cultural Resource Management program at the University of Victoria in British Columbia. The course is entitled The New Web: Interactive and Collaborative Technologies in the Museum World, and as the title suggests, it explores the ever-shifting subject of social technologies and the ways they can be used in the museum world. The course looks at everything from blogging to YouTube and how this is slowly changing how museums approach Web development.
This is the second time I’ve taught this particular course, although in some ways it is a continuation of a similar one (the Web 1.0 version) that I first taught back in 2001. We usually have an interesting and international mix of participants. The course is geared for museum professionals and registration is open until December 22nd. The New Web runs from January 21 through 26, 2008. You can read more about the course on the UVIC website.
