Is your museum in shape for the networked digital world?

Do your technological skills need a workout or are you looking to flex some digital muscle?

 

The Museums Association’s Digital Basics Boot Camp is a fast-paced one-day conference covering all the essential digital skills that museums need today, including:

  • Practical social media: Thinking strategically about social media activity, including effective tools and approaches, and useful case studies
  • Effective content: Identify content in your organisation, writing for the web, and planning and commissioning for the best results
  • Measuring success: Using Google Analytics, surveys and user testing to work out who is using your website, how they are using it, and how you can respond
  • Digital surgery: Do you have specific questions about working online? Delegates may submit questions, and a selection will be answered by the day’s speakers

 

Sector digital heavyweights lead masterclasses, share best practice advice and offer tailored support throughout the day.

 

This event is for any museum professional who wants to polish their digital skills, find out what to spend their time and money on, and gain the confidence to pursue their own digital projects back at their museum.
