Reconsidering Museums is a national research and advocacy initiative created for Canadian museums to rethink their role and value to the public.
This course is designed for individuals interested in how to use and apply the Reconsidering Museums toolkit. It is a self-directed, module-based, asynchronous course consisting of four modules:
- Module 1: Introduction to Reconsidering Museums
- Module 2: What Museums Mean to Canadians
- Module 3: Changing the Conversation
- Module 4: Taking the Step into Activism.
The modules are designed to be taken in order, but participants can access any or all modules based on their interests. Completing the modules will provide an understanding of Reconsidering Museums and its outcomes, the purpose and value of the resources in the toolkit, as well as how to use and apply the toolkit in their work or institution.
The course is free and open to all. If you have questions about the course content, or want to learn more about Reconsidering Museums, visit reconsideringmuseums.ca or send an email to email@example.com.
We acknowledge that our work takes place on the territories of the many First Nations, Métis, and Inuit who have lived on and stewarded the land now known as Canada and its stories since time immemorial. We acknowledge the colonial legacy of museums and the harm caused by our sector and commit to respecting and promoting Indigenous peoples’ right to self-determination. We seek to collect the many perspectives that contribute to our shared history, present, and future as we work towards reconciliation.
