Resources by Amy Todd
The move towards digital has opened up many great opportunities for small to medium-sized heritage organisations to make a big impact, but also presents some challenges. Many heritage organisations rely on volunteers to operate and the digital skills of a volunteer team may be limited. This resource by Dig Yourself provides guidance on how to identify the digital training needs of your volunteers and how get started with digital upskilling with limited resources.
The Covid-19 pandemic pushed heritage organisations into re-evaluating their digital engagement strategies with key audiences, with online events and activities allowing for greater inclusive access. This resource by Dig Yourself explores the key elements you need to think about to make your online events and activities as safe, accessible and inclusive as possible.
Heritage organisations have started to expand their learning offer to deliver programmes, resources and events online. In this webinar recording, Amy Todd and Liam Cunningham from Dig Yourself consider what elements of online learning can we use to support the in-person learning experience. From expanding audiences, increasing accessibility and engaging with new communities — there are many ways in which you and your heritage organisation can blend your in-person engagement with digital offers.
