About our webinars

A new module will be introduced each month with an introductory session or technical training workshop offered each week. All sessions will be broadcast live with an opportunity for attendees to ask questions in real time. Session recordings and transcripts will be available in each module after a live event. All webinars are shown on the Watch Live page on this website! 

Get inspired and get started

Our first ten live learning modules will be focused on digital media and technology topics. Each module will feature an introductory session by museum professionals to connect topics to real-world museums with real-world budgets, followed by three technical training workshops taught by subject-matter experts and tailored to varying levels of experience (beginner to advanced).
