An ‘open for all’ approach to digital learning
One of the Science Museum Group’s five core values is to ensure we are ‘Open for All’. This underpins our working practices and is embedded into everything we do. We are committed to ensuring that all people, be they our colleagues or the millions of people who visit our sites or engage with us online, see our museums and sites as places for them. We are informed by science capital research and our Access and Equity Frameworks which identify the barriers to engagement which exist within STEM, help us to challenge inequalities, create content that is accessible, and offer spaces where everyone can feel they belong. How can we apply these principles to an online learning offer, and what does ‘open for all’ digital learning look like?
