The Museum of Military Medicine is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund for a new project the Museum is undertaking, called ‘Helping the Wounded: The Impact of Medical Developments in WWI on Medical Practice Today.’
The project will focus on developing skills in working with objects and story narratives as part of facilitated workshops. These workshops will help teachers to develop their skills in teaching about heritage in engaging and inspiring ways. One of the main outcomes of the workshops will be a series of digital resources (pdf documents) on the Museum’s website that will be developed for teachers to access the role the heritage objects played in the development of medical practices. This digital legacy is vital during the period when the Museum closes to the public in 2021, as part of its plan to relocate from Aldershot to Cardiff Bay.
As part of the project, Jane Churchill, who will be leading the workshops, has set up part of the London Guildhall Echoes exhibition at the Museum, which forms an introduction to the way teachers and educators can approach the topic.
