Storytelling for Glams
GLAM collections are a treasure trove of stories. But sharing them can be challenging. For an organisation to be a wellspring of content it takes planning, investigation, influence and craft. In this half day workshop we will explore:
  • Story Hunting
Where do you find the best stories in your organisation? (Hint - it’s not always on the label).
  • Storytelling
How do you tell a great story? What gives a story stickiness? We’ll look at recent examples of successful content from journalism, marketing, and GLAMs, and consider why some stories resonate.
  • Planning and Tools
Keeping up with content takes a lot of planning and organisation. What tools are helpful, easy to adopt and the best for collaboration.
  • Measuring
Is your content working? We’ll run through ways to measure your content’s performance and how to spot the dead horses.
  • Experimentation and Play
Finally we’ll look at ways others have experimented and played with their content.

Te Taiao Nature Digital Production Tools
Discover the tools and processes Te Papa developed for production of Te Taiao Nature digital experiences. Tools are shared in this workshop for you to use on future large or small digital products, and product portfolios, including, software, digital content production, animation, and video production, within the GLAM sector.

Participants are encouraged to bring at least one concept or small portfolio of concepts. In the workshop, participants will apply the tools and processes discussed to the concepts they bring. Concepts can be actual work in progress, hypothetical, or ‘just an idea’.

Take part and take away a set of tools and processes, with behind-the-scenes examples of how the tools helped add value to digital experiences within the Te Taiao Nature exhibition.

Tools shared will add value to:
  • Divergent ideation
  • Convergent idea development and evaluation
  • Concept development
  • Prototyping and User testing
  • Scoping and Budget setting
  • Resource modelling
  • Standards and Guidelines
  • Procurement and Portfolio management
  • Production phases, Workflow mapping, and Sprint planning
  • Evaluation & Post opening improvements

The workshop will be led by Amos Mann, Digital Production Lead for Te Taiao Nature, and museum practitioner with over 20 years’ GLAM sector experience.

The Te Taiao Nature Digital Production Tools workshop is complimentary to the [Springload Prototyping Workshop].

Wikidata for GLAMs: An introduction
This is a fast, thorough introduction to Wikidata, a free open (CC0) database, able to be read by both people and computers, collaboratively edited by anyone at all. Wikidata provides the information to Wikipedia, WikiCommons, and other Wikimedia projects, but being free and open is being used by many other groups needing authority lists, name disambiguation, subject headings, and a hub that links widely-separated databases. Wikidata is growing fast, with 67 million items at last count, and is being watched with great interest by the GLAM sector. Get in on the ground floor.
We will cover the following:
  • What is Wikidata? 
  • Structure of Wikidata 
  • Introduction to editing
  • Editing Activities 
  • More teaching of Wikidata (your questions answered)
  • Applying Wikidata 
  • Query activities
  • Wrap up and evaluation

Digital Prototyping Workshop
Learn how to test your concept with a prototype. Rapid prototyping ensures we can test and refine our ideas with a relatively low effort and higher degree of certainty. You will learn how to enable your team to create fast and iterative prototypes. The workshop will be led by Robin Marshall, Head of Innovation and New Opportunities, and Joris Rotteveel, Technical Lead at Springload. With their combined experience in creating digital interactive experiences for the GLAM sector, they will guide you to bring your concept to life as a prototype.

This workshop is best to be combined with the Te Taiao Nature Digital Production Tools workshop by Amos Mann. Otherwise, participants will get most out of this workshop by bringing a feasible concept to the workshop that they wish to test.

Linked Data 101
Introduction to Linked Open Data including linked data principles and practices, simple data cleaning and publishing tools that will help users tackle even the most troublesome of collection data and prepare records for publishing online.

What makes Linked Data different? What is RDF? What is SPARQL? How are they used? What is Wikidata and how could it make a difference for our collections?

This workshop is an evolution of the Linked Data 101 workshops run at the last couple of NDFs.

Playing with code - a Jupyter workshop
At NDF2018, Tim Sherratt showed us some of the possibilities of Jupyter and Binder in his talk "A GLAM data workbenches for reluctant researchers" (https://youtu.be/ONnxd-1KJFI).

As Tim nimbly demonstrated with live code examples during his talk, "Jupyter lets you play around and gain confidence with code - not by undertaking a series of boring exercises, but by just doing something that you're interested in and that has an immediate pay off for you. And as your confidence grows you can start asking different questions."

Tim's talk generated a lot of buzz from the audience, and this year we'd like to give the NDF community the chance to dive deeper into tools like Python, Jupyter, and Binder, and to get hands on experience manipulating, interrogating and visualising data from datasets and APIs.

The detailed workshop outline will be finalised shortly, but Tim's "GLAM workbench" contains content we can use as a starting point, and there are other use cases being shared in the GLAM community (e.g. see this Twitter thread: https://twitter.com/wragge/status/985693489378701312?s=19).
