Dhp at the dcma - a unique place to learn
The Dufferin County Museum & Archives has partnered with the UGDSB as a host and facilitator for the Digital Historian Project. We are both honoured and proud to be a part of this unique program.
Surrounded by beautiful exhibits and historic buildings, the learning environment at the DCMA is unique and far removed from the average classroom. Open at its current location since 1994, the DCMA is home to a broad range of artifacts and archival documents. Students in the DHP get to work with these artifacts and documents on a level not experienced by the public.
Students in the DHP become immersed in the museum-world. Participants in the program engage with staff to research, create, and present museum-based projects. The in-depth research and historical inquiry completed by students is excellent skill-building preparation for post-secondary education. In addition, work created by students gets displayed or is made available to the public - something that rarely happens in a formal museum setting.
We invite any students and parents interested in the DHP to visit the museum any time. We look forward to meeting and working with future students of the DHP program.
