    This unit will examine how digital tools and techniques can be used to extend our understanding of cultural heritage theory and practice. From the now familiar world of blogs and social media, through to big data and computer vision, technology is changing the way we work within cultural heritage. Students will investigate these new methods of research and representation, analysing their implications and experimenting with data, text, and images. Through practical exercises using a range of digital tools, students will gain skills, confidence, and critical insights into the future of cultural heritage practice.

    Learning Outcomes

    On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

    1. Categorise and compare a range of digital tools and techniques, relating them to needs and opportunities within the cultural heritage sector;

    2. Analyse the political, social, and ethical implications of the use of digital technologies within cultural heritage research and practice;

    3. Employ a variety of digital tools and techniques to analyse, enrich, and visualise cultural heritage data; and

    4. Use digital tools to engage audiences with cultural heritage collections and projects.
