[Call for Papers!] THE BEST IN HERITAGE 2014, 25-27 September, Dubrovnik

[Call for Papers!] THE BEST IN HERITAGE 2014, 25-27 September, Dubrovnik | Accelerating e-Excellence | Scoop.it

The Best in Heritage is an annual survey of award-winning museum, heritage and conservation projects. Organised under special patronage of International Council of Museums and in partnership with Europa Nostra, it is supported by The City of Dubrovnik and Croatian Ministry of Culture.


CALL FOR PAPERS, POST-CONFERENCE SYMPOSIUM

28 September, Dubrovnik


The Useful Heritage

Efficiency and excellence in the public memory sector

Our claim is that all heritage organisations and institutions (museums, conservation, libraries, archives, hybrid and cyber institutions, heritage actions and networks) continue to demonstrate a constant convergence of theories and practices and the need for a common science. This science in the making is a cohesion factor for the many diverse heritage occupations which each have their own theories (e.g. Museology, Archivistics, Librarianship, Computer science etc.).

This Call for papers is in fact a plea for like-minded sympathizers and allies to join us in the project of a future grand profession, uniting all our heritage occupations in a concerted effort to turn our collective public memories into a Useful Heritage.

Deadline is April 15th 2014!

Making lectures and lessons more interactive with mQlicker | Accelerating e-Excellence | Scoop.it

As the traditional lecture has come increasingly under fire for being completely out of touch with modern teaching and learning methods, there has been a move by many teachers, conference presenters and lecturers to make their teaching techniques more modern and interactive. One of the key technologies for enabling this has been a range of audience response systems that provide real time responses to polls, questions and surveys while the speakers is actually presenting.
