The University will be hosting Ms Deborah Howes, Director of Digital Learning, Museum of Modern Art, New York on December 5th, 2013 for a discussion about MOOCs and Digital Resources in the Arts.
Deborah Howes recently developed a selection of courses with Coursera on modern and contemporary art (www.coursera.org/moma, www.moma.org/coursesonline). The newest course features actual media artworks by internationally known artists like Bill Viola, Yoko Ono, Bruce Nauman, and many more.
Deborah will be a guest speaker at a breakfast conversation with our leading artists, academics, eLearning experts and curators. The overall topic of the conversation will be “Towards a Global Learning Gallery – Why Connections on Arts Resources Matter”. Chaired by the DVC(A) Prof Pip Pattison, Deborah will talk about MoMA’s online courses program and the opportunities for collaboration to be followed by a Q+A panel discussion with Jon Cattapan, Jeanette Hoorn and Gregor Kennedy.
Participation in the session is by invite only. There is an opportunity for all staff to attend Ms Howes public lecture organised by Museums Victoria at Melbourne Museum on the same day. More information on how to register for the lecture can be found here.
