The Connected Audience
27 + 28 February 2014
Our society has been transformed by new technology and its use by museums have far-reaching implications in the way we experience museums, how museums themselves communicate with us, but also in how audience research can be designed and undertaken. This 2-day conference will examine innovative audience research projects which use digital media and web-based technology to better understand visitor behaviour and will explore how new technology can help visitors to have a fulfilling museum experience. A series of best practice examples, 'pecha-kucha' presentations and high profile key-note speakers such as the leading expert John H. Falk (USA), will provide an exceptional get-together of international audience research experts and those who are keen to learn more about the use and evaluation of new technology in audience research projects.
