The Virtual Museum of Public Service: A Resource for Teaching Public Administration in a Multimedia World
Room 158

This presentation introduces the Virtual Museum of Public Service (VMPS) as a teaching resource, demonstrating its use in the delivery of public administration core courses. The presentation includes students’ assessments of the advantages and disadvantages of multimedia technologies in the on line classroom, and lessons learned about using these methodologies. The VMPS is unique as a museum on public administration and reaffirms the belief that citizens-as-public servants are a priceless and necessary part of our lives. This online museum is a free and accessible resource for teaching public administration and by using advanced technologies, the VMPS is a source of inspiration for those hearing the call to public service. It is aimed to inspire the best and brightest to careers that are socially responsible in government, non-profits, philanthropic organizations and as volunteers. The VMPS is also an evolving database on the history of public administration.
