Participation in the Collections Management for Costume & Textiles Online program 2015/2016 was exceptional in many ways. The program gave me the complete overview of tasks related to collections management based on procedures, recognized sources and good practices for museums. Though I was experienced in heritage protection, I not only improved my professional standards and ethics but I also learned how to focus on relevant issues. Besides, I upgraded my writing and communication skills.
The program was held online, so the forum served as a classroom. Still, there were dynamic discussions on the issues of the week and I learned from very interesting posts on each day of the program. I have not met friends from the group yet, but I hope I will.
What I also admired about the program, is that I could implement what I learned almost instantly – in professional or everyday situations.
