LONDON HERITAGE COUNCIL – LOCAL MUSEUMS
Opportunity:
Due to COVID-19, many London museums are facing the daunting task of moving their educational programs online. While many have been working to digitize collections and create educational content, such as videos, virtual tours, and podcasts, offering close to 100 percent of their educational programs virtually so quickly has been a challenge. Moving beyond virtual tours and online exhibits, virtual museum educational offerings need to include pedagogical goals and outcomes that meet the Ministry of Education’s curriculum expectations. Because so much has moved online, it is also important that the lessons are engaging and hold students’ attention. In addition, if the museums are going to be able to draw any revenue from offering online courses, they must be of professional quality. While offering digital classes will not replicate or make up for the lack of field trips to the museum, it will be a stepping stone for many of the museums and a possible revenue source. Museums student teachers may be working with are the Museum of Ontario Archaeology, The Royal Canadian Regiment Museum, the Canadian Medical Hall of Fame, Jet Aircraft Museum, Eldon House, Fanshawe Pioneer Village, and the Secrets of Radar Museum.
