Call for Certificate in Museum Studies Instructors
Note: This call has closed.
The AMA is seeking individuals to serve as
instructors for the Certificate in Museum Studies (CMS) Program.
Responsibilities will include participating in the current
curriculum review and digitization of CMS course offerings, as well
as teaching in the program.
CMS instructors develop course content based
on the AMA's curriculum and teach the content to CMS participants
either in person or online. To ensure that each course has a team
of instructors who are available to teach and develop content, the
AMA is recruiting new instructors to augment its current faculty.
The teams of instructors will work together to develop the new
course content and redevelop existing content for online delivery,
with input from the project consultant and the AMA to ensure
alignment with the revised curriculum.
Serving as a CMS instructor helps to support
the professionalization, best practices, and development of the
next generation of the Alberta museum community. The AMA is able to
offer the instructors a modest fee for service.
To be a CMS instructor, successful applicants
must have a thorough understanding of best practice standards in
the Standard Practices Handbook for Museums, 3rd Edition,
and specific knowledge and experience in museum practice in one or
more of the following areas:
- Collections Management
- Museum Governance
- Museum Management
- Museums and Society
- Preventive Conservation
- Reconciliation and Indigenous Knowledge
If you are interested in supporting the AMA
and the Alberta museum community as a CMS instructor, please
complete the application
form and submit it with your resumé to email@example.com.
The deadline for CMS instructor applications
is Friday, January 14, 2022.
This is an excellent way to become more
involved with the AMA and with the greater Alberta museum
community. If you have any questions about the CMS Review or would
like more information on the CMS Program, please visit the
CMS webpage or contact Meredith Leary, Program Lead, at firstname.lastname@example.org or
