Posted: Tuesday, 07 May 2019

The University of Reading is holding a Museum studies workshop: Teaching with collections in higher education: demonstrating value, on the 10 June 2019 at the Museum of English Rural Life at the University of Reading.

This one-day workshop at the University of Reading will bring together staff working in higher education and the museums, archives, libraries and heritage sector to reflect on previous practice and share current practice on teaching with collections in higher education. We will also explore the possible development opportunities and future for this work.

The programme will include 10-minute presentations and a panel session. There will also be a workshop exploring current strengths of teaching with collections in higher education (HE) and possible future shared projects.

This conference is organised by Dr Rhi Smith and Dr Nicola Pickering at the University of Reading's Museums and Special Collections Service. To find out more about Museum Studies at the University of Reading please see www.reading.ac.uk/merl/LearnatMERL/merl-museumstudies.aspx
