What better a way to learn something new than doing it first-hand? In January, Cuseum worked closely with Johns Hopkins University’s Museum Studies Graduate Program to embark on hands-on learning collaboration. One of their core projects focused on producing mobile content and thematic tours for visitors to the San Diego Museum of Man. Students completed the program with not only deeper knowledge of new digital tools for engagement, but also tangible proof-of-concept: a mobile app in hand.
Where do art, tech and accessibility meet? Increasingly, in the museum. Recently, the Harvard Art Museum hosted “Museum as Teaching Lab: Experiments in Inclusive Design” – a discussion addressing how art museums can expand ideas of inclusive design and access as part of HUBweek 2016.
