A guide to hybrid and blended cultural learning in 2023 and beyond

Blended cultural learning and participation programmes consist of both in person and online opportunities. Online learning can be delivered in real time or made accessible for use at different times. Hybrid learning simultaneously integrates online and in person elements



The below notes and videos are from a series of Space for Learning Hybrid Learning Guidance workshops running from June 2022. The workshops have been programmed in response to needs identified by museum and gallery learning colleagues around understanding and delivering blended and hybrid learning.

Delivered in partnership by the Clore Duffield Foundation, Engage and the Group for Education in Museums (GEM).
