New technologies often create as many questions as they answer. How often should we post and where? Where do we put our energy and resources? What is a digital strategy, and how do we measure our success? In this interactive session, we’ll work together to explore what being “digital” means to B.C.’s museums, what kind of tools and resources are most useful for you, your staff, and your visitors, and how can the BCMA help you to achieve your digital goals. By the end of this session, we’ll have collected ideas for improving the BCMA’s digital offerings, while also providing you with some strategies, ideas, and tools to start evaluating your own organization’s digital tools.

This session is FREE thanks to the support from the Government of Canada through the First Spark Initiative.
