Greetings all,
My name is Andrew Saluti, I'm an Assistant Professor and Program Coordinator for the Graduate Program in Museum Studies at Syracuse University. My background is in prep, installation and design- and I've created and taught our foundational practical courses in gallery prep, object handling, exhibition design and management, etc., for the past 10 years. I'm working on a proposal for the 2019 European conference that focuses on various approaches to teaching these skills, tech, and best practices- something to the effect of 'From Prep to Professor'. My focus will emphasize the imperative role that institutional partnerships play- with local museums, collections, etc.
I'm wondering if there are any other interested educators out there who would be interested in participating in such a presentation- and what kind of perspective you might bring? I'm eager to here your thoughts.
