Virtual Programs: Finding the Formula

Over the past two years, the Canadian War Museum has run over a hundred virtual programs for public and school audiences with varying levels of success. Thanks to a robust evidence-based approach which included critical self-evaluation, feedback from other institutions and thousands of surveys from participants, we think we have found the formula to successful digital engagement for our institution. Join us as we outline three case studies, share our key take-aways and expand on our ideas for a hybrid legacy to stay connected with our national, and international, audiences.
