MEET: where education, evaluation and technology meet… #ma2015syd


As part of the Museums Australia conference, a joint initiative of MAE (Museums Australia Education), EVR (Evaluation and Visitor Research) and MuseTech. We hope the day will be dynamic and participatory and so invite you to attend the day and consider proposing a ‘lightning talk’ (either a 3 minute presentation or a 7 minute presentation) that speaks to some aspect of education, evaluation or digital as it relates to your work.
We’re asking participants to frame their talk within one of these three key areas:
– I have a big idea
– I have problem
– I have something I need help with
We’re looking forward to a valuable and exciting set of presentations that help shape the dialogue and debate in the afternoon sessions of the MEET day and further into the main conference (and beyond).
If you’re interested in presenting a lightning talk please email Angela Casey with a lightning talk title and a brief outline of your proposed presentation. The committee will aim to select a range of talks that represent education, evaluation and digital. We’ll also supply a presentation template for speakers to use.
