Feedback & Keys to Success
How do you feel BAW participation benefited your organization and the local community?
BAW in general is an interesting extension of the topics shown in our museum. BAW also gives us the opportunity to cooperate with other institutions (University of Salzburg). In 2021, BAW has been the only opportunity so far to outreach on pupils due to strict regulations.
Please share any suggestions or lessons learned that may help others plan future events:
If you still are not firm with online online-lectures/workshops, have at least two check-runs beforehand.If you use chats during your lecture, have an assistent at hand to observe the chat. If working with pupils, better turn off the chat-function during the workshop… 🙂
