How to prepare for the unexpected

Published on: 20th July, 2023

In today's episode I'll be exploring a topic that every museum educator can relate to: being prepared for the unexpected.

When was the last time you were facilitating a programme and something unexpected came up?

Maybe it was a spontaneous discussion sparked by an unexpected object or a group with unique accessibility needs. These moments remind us of the value of being ready for anything.

As museum educators, we operate in a dynamic and ever-changing environment, interacting with diverse audiences and different groups, each with their own perspectives and interests. Unexpected situations can arise at any moment, making our roles both rewarding and challenging.

In this episode, I'll take you through a variety of strategies that will help you equip yourself with the right tools and mindset to handle unforeseen situations effectively.

We'll delve into everything from making quick adjustments to adopting a proactive approach.

Tune in to discover practical ways to be prepared for whatever comes your way. Let's embrace the unexpected together!
