We are excited to feature important voices from the museums and heritage education sector in our upcoming Education Skills Sharing Sessions on Twitter. These now weekly digital discussions on Twitter aim to connect education departments at museums and heritage sites across the globe with the GEM audience in a Q&A style format. Every  Thursday from 15:00-17:00 GMT a different learning department will host an #EdSkillsShare on the GEM account and moderate a live discussion where participants can chime in to ask questions and the moderator will answer and share examples from their organisation.

Prior to their session, GEM will release a short summary of each department including what their successes and challenges are to aid in generating relevant questions and discussion during the session. Mark your diaries and engage in digital discussions with the following museum and heritage learning departments…
