Presentation: Museums and Higher Ed

On Thursday, April 25, 2013, along with three partner faculty members, I appeared on a panel at a conference organized by the Baruch-Rubin Project entitled “Museums and Higher Education in the 21st Century: Collaborative Methods and Models for Innovation.”

We had originally proposed a whole panel session, but the conference organizers were overwhelmed by the number of great proposals, so we were limited to the time given to one paper. Instead of having me speak for everyone, we decided to create lightning rounds and still present four voices. I introduced the Students and Faculty in the Archives project, each professor presented a case study, and I concluded with some of our findings. I think we were quite successful at including a variety of perspectives in a limited amount of time, and I actually think the fast pace of our presentation was attention-grabbing and well-received!
