Event description
A practical and in-depth workshop on how to develop online delivery of your schools learning programme, from an active museum educator.

About this event

The potential for museums to deliver elements of their programme online has become clear as a result of the pandemic. This workshop will equip you to implement online schools delivery for your own museum, as part of your schools programme.

Emma McBeath, from Leeds Museums & Galleries, will share their experiences and explore what’s the same and what’s different about delivering your schools learning offer online. What's the potential for audiences? Most importantly, what are the practical considerations for implementing this work? The session will cover what tech you need, which platform you might use, safeguarding in online delivery, access and inclusion, and how much to charge.

There will be opportunities for questions and discussion, and a chance to think through how you will implement this work in your museum.

This will be a very practical session to support you if you are thinking about incorporating online schools learning into your programme.


Participants will:

  •  Understand what’s the same and what’s different about online schools learning
  •  Understand what makes a good online learning experience and how to engage students remotely
  •  Understand some options for a technical set-up and online delivery platforms and how to gain confidence in using them
  •  Know how to ensure safeguarding is maintained in online delivery
  •  Be aware of access and inclusion considerations for online delivery
  •  Gain insight into charging


At the end of the session, participants will be able to:

  •  Identify what makes a good quality online schools learning offer
  •  Make decisions about technical equipment and platforms for delivery
  •  Update policies and procedures for safeguarding in online delivery
  •  Identify considerations for access and inclusion in online delivery
  •  Take an informed view on charging for online learning sessions

Booking priority will be given to non-NPO museums in the Yorkshire and Humber region.

How will the training be delivered?

This 2-hour session will be delivered via Zoom, with a short break in the middle.
