Call for Museum Meet-Up at the 2013 Digital Media and Learning Conference

I would like to call for a Museum Meet-Up at this year’s 2013 Digital Media and Learning Conference.

If you are attending the Chicago Conference this year and would like to meet with other museum professionals in attendance, please add your name in the comment space below and you’ll be notified when we update this post with an exact location. If you like, please also add what you might like to do with everyone once we get together (what issues you might like to explore, what questions you might want to ask, etc.)

Let’s plan to meet Friday, during the 12:30 – 2:00 lunch break.

This is being (informally) coordinated by staff from the American Museum of Natural History, the California Academy of Sciences, and the Field Museum.

    This is great, thanks for organizing! I am definitely interested and would love to spend a portion of the discussion on any of the following:

    -Housing makerspaces inside Museums – practical concerns and successes within standard musuem constraints

    -Internal organizational structure for digital learning initiatives – How are teams structured? Where does it live? Who “owns” it?

    -Possibilities for multi-museum digital learning experiences – what can we collaborate on that best leverages the strengths and resoures of our organizations?

    -Collaborative research – how can we collect and share reserach and evaluation data on digital inititiaves from our institutions to inform our practice and add to the field?

    So lunch is at 12:30 on Friday. Why don’t we meet in the lobby and plan to leave for lunch by 12:45 – and if you’d like to come but are running late you can tweet me at @MMMooshme to either let us know to wait or to ask where we will be. Once a place to picked I will also try to post it here as well.
