Learning outcomes

At the end of the workshop the student:

Course contents

The workshop aims to provide theoretical and practical skills to design sustainable educational pathways in cultural organizations, cities and digital environments. The workshop will start from the European guidelines on lifelong learning and will highlight the role of the museum as a democratic, inclusive and dialogical institution oriented to the active participation of different audiences. In this regard during the workshop the themes concerning the evolution of the museum, the studies on the museum audience and the new perspectives of audience engagement on digital will be explored (web museum, virtual museum, app, social network). Didactic paths with art and heritage will also be analyzed. These projects were carried out in urban contexts to promote community empowerment processes, also involving potential publics who live in conditions of exclusion.
