Microlearning Series Summer Student and Community Museum

A microlearning series is a collection of small learning opportunities that participants can view on their own schedule. Summer Student and Community Museum is just the first episode in that series, documenting interviews with summer students at the Avonlea Heritage Museum.

The recording talks about using social media, special events and local attractions to engage with the community and get support for the museum. SWDCRS plans to release 3-4 more of these short instructional videos in the next 6 months.

To receive video content, you must register any time before September 30th. Register to gain access to this video on demand.
