The Association of Midwest Museums (AMM) will facilitate a pilot project that will engage six regional museum associations and a technology consultant as collaborative partners to provide technological training for small museums across the nation. As many museums increase their online presence in place of in-person experiences in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the project will provide access to best practices to build capacity for digital media and information technology. AMM will present 10 live modules that include hands-on, step-by-step training by museum technology experts and fellows. Module topics will address collections digitization; learning initiatives; community engagement/audience development; and discoverability/online presence. A dedicated website will feature a resource hub including the session recordings and supplementary toolkits.
