Updated to reflect new time!

This will be a lively discussion by the Head of Academic Programs and Head of Library at the Museum of Islamic Art in Doha, with an introduction by the Deputy Director. The presentation is based on the case study of what MIA Learning and Outreach did with programing and resources during the first three phases of the COVID-19 lock down and how things are working during the re-opening in phase four.

The content will focus on four areas:
1) Online programming – how we prepared from home over 40 sets of content related to: art workshops, story time, online resources and inspiring educational activities for adults and children.
2) Technology – discussion of technology being used and best practices being developed (Teams, Zoom, Social Media, Splice, etc.)
3) Professional development of staff – new training and learning (CDP) for the L&O team this includes online course at Open University, Yale, Hootsuite and Domestika
4) Online resources – discussion of the types of online resources that the museum made available via different streams such as: the museum website (lesson plans), storytime videos (Instagram), online exhibitions and reading challenge (Omeka).

The presentation will include a good bibliography and useful links to resources developed.

Learning Outcomes:
• Understanding of a museum in the Gulf's approach to open/distance learning during COVID-19
• Making online resources available via your website, OPAC and other platforms (Social Media, OMEKA, etc.)
• Key learnings regarding technology and digital platforms
• Social Media best practices for museums
• Where to find professional development in digital for museum staff (Yale Digital Marketing, Hootsuite, etc.)
