This is Our Playground: recognising the value of students as innovators

CMR researcher Alan Hook and PhD candidate Oonagh Murphy will be presenting  at the Conference Museums and the Web 2013 in Portland, Oregon between the 17th and 20th April. It follows research undertaken in April 2012, around informal events such as Hack Days as a way for Higher Education to engage and feed into the museums and cultural sector (This Is Our Playground Project),

The paper entitled “This is Our Playground: Recognising the value of students as innovators” is available prior to the conference online. The paper proposes that an informal relationship between young practitioners and large cultural organisations is a practical way to think about fast, nimble Digital Research and Development teams for these institutions and gives real world contexts to students designs and projects.
