Pausanio Akademie: Forward-looking seminars for museums, archives and libraries

Pausanio Akademie as the event partner of MUTEC is represented with a wide array of seminars. For these courses, the focus will be on the subjects of digitization and documentation, research and visitor communication, digital strategies of conveying information, and image rights. Interested participants can pre-register for 10 different seminars. For instance, the first trade fair day will feature the seminar “From the file-card box to the portal”, an introduction to the digital documentation of files and portals. Taking place at the same time, the workshop “Demonstrating know-how, setting topics” will introduce digital content management and show that this subject is of particular interest for cultural institutions as a link between public relations and knowledge distribution. Subsequently, two seminars dealing with the strategic use of digitisation will be held in parallel with the titles “Digitisation – and what comes next?” and “The digital ecosystem”. The day is concluded by the keynote presentation “The shruggie principle – encouraging digital serenity” by Dirk von Gehlen, Head of Social Media/Innovation at Süddeutsche Zeitung. This presentation will be available to all visitors in the MUTEC forum.

On the second trade fair day, the Pausanio Akademie seminars will centre around the topic of Social Media. First, “Pin, snap, vine?” is to provide an introduction to this important field of communication, presenting the most important basics. The workshop “I spy with my little eye” will be taking place at the same time. At this event, participants can get up to speed on the latest augmented reality hand-ons, learn how exhibits can be linked to additional information, such as images or videos, with the help of software, and how to display them on the visitor’s smartphone. After this, the audience can see some in-depth applications of social media in the seminar “TweetUp or InstaWalk?” or gain interesting insight into open-content strategies for cultural institutions in the workshop “Wikipedia helps museums”.

The last MUTEC day will be dedicated to legal questions around the provision of culture and knowledge, with the workshop “From purveyor of knowledge to facilitator”. At the same time, trade visitors can dive deep into 3D digitisation and virtual reality and learn how these forward-looking innovations can be used effectively in their own organisation.
