Partnership Opportunities with IMLS
Grant Center Webinar
Friday, April 27, 2012
2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. EDT
When the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) announced the first grantees of its Grants for Learning Labs in Libraries and Museums program, three of the 12 included public media station partnerships. These stations are currently working with local museums and libraries to create digital learning labs in their communities.
The second round of this program is currently accepting applications with a June 15, 2012 deadline. To learn more about this program and how your station can be involved, check out this webinar from Friday, April 27, 2012. Marsha Semmel, Director of Strategic Partnerships at IMLS, shared program information and tips about the application process, and we heard from Matthew Williams, Educational Technologist at KQED, one of the current grantees, about their experience and success.
