Simone Stoltz: Media education in heritage

Heritage institutions have an impressive track record when it comes to the use of media. As transmitters and receivers of information in various shapes, heritage institutions themselves are seen as a medium.

The technological innovations that are changing the way we work and live demand new skills of the people managing it. This requires for heritage institutions to take on a new attitude towards their proposition and their audience communication. When teaching media in heritage it’s often a generational difference that disrupts the vision on the digital strategy. This reflects strongly on the training of the future heritage professional and the skills or competences that are needed. A new curriculum is needed to meet the future heritage professionals - at least half way.
