The Royal BC Museum has launched an online support program called RBCM@ Home (Office Hours), to provide examples of activities and lessons highlighting learning resources from the museum, respond to questions and support educators. RBCM@Home (Office Hours) is a virtual meeting just for educators (including parents at home!). Royal BC Museum learning staff will be on hand at each session to walk educators through the museum and archives’ online resources and answer questions, offering live support through Zoom and by phone. RBCM@Home (Office Hours) takes place every second Monday and Friday. To learn more about these sessions and join the Zoom meetings, visit the museum’s event calendar at royalbcmuseum.bc.ca/visit/calendar. RBCM@Home (Office Hours) will also host a Monthly Educator Webinar.
RBCM@Home is designed for youth and adults, and features members of the curatorial and collections staff who are working from home. RBCM@Home (Kids) is much like an online museum playdate. RBCM@Outside is a series of themed virtual field trips to local outdoor destinations.
If attendees miss a livestream, they may catch the recorded session on the Royal BC Museum’s YouTube channel at youtube.com/RoyalBCMuseum.
