One by One

One by One is a 30 month national digital literacy building project for UK museums of all sizes and types

One by One aims to help UK museums of any size better define, improve, measure and embed the digital literacy of their staff and volunteers in all roles and at all levels. The project also aims to build the practical skills of all staff and volunteers, not just those in technical roles, with formal and informal digital learning initiatives covering a range of professional and individual digital literacies, enabling staff to more confidently embed digital skills and knowledge in their work.

By introducing a new approach to digital literacy, understanding and development, this project aims to shift mindsets across the museum sector from just thinking about the technology and how to use it, to thinking instead about how we value digital technology, how we manage it, how we think and create with it. It’s about people in museums being informed, reflective, responsive and active around digital.

In short: One by One is about moving from digital competency to digital confidence. It’s about building a digitally fluent museum workforce, from the ground up, one by one.

One by One is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), is led by The University of Leicester in partnership with Culture24, and is being delivered together with a range of museums, strategic sector agencies and academic partners.
