Learning, Teaching and Curating: Situated Digital Experience in Museums - A free course during the 2020 Coronavirus global pandemic
MOFET International invites you to attend this free course which will help you create your own online museum to share with your students, colleagues and acquaintances. Museums are the repository of our cultural heritage and thus should become destinations to explore and learn scientific, historic and artistic themes. Students can feel and sense valuable artefacts and handmade objects that shape their lives. The main question is: How do we encourage our visitors to satisfy their curiosity in the museum? Experimental methods and their didactics are the core of this online course. We will see how all museums and heritage sites can be used as places of learning with the UNESCO Best Mobile Practice innovative technology – the Wandering Platform. The free course will begin on April 5 and will include seven synchronized meetings that will take place via the ZOOM™ platform. Notice: This is not a MOOC. As so, the number of participants is limited so hurry and sign up! Free registration ends on 02.04.2020.

My words are not meant to heal physically but to inspire spiritually. At this challenging time, it seems appropriate that those in the positions to (re)build confidence should do so. In that spirit, I am sharing thoughts on how we might be able to spiritually cope with the uncertain reality that has rapidly spread throughout the world. The coronavirus is not only a disease of the body, but also presents an existential crisis that has put governments, businesses and, most important, communities and individuals on edge.
