Anita is the first trained Video Coach (beeldcoach) for museum teachers / guides in the Netherlands, in Europe, actually... worldwide. Video coaching is a method developed especially for people working in the educational field and health care. Sessions are recorded, analysed and discussed for further development. During her study she also used this method successfully in the corporate field.
Anita loves to share her wide range of experience with colleagues, museums and other cultural institutions. With Muzeaal Verhalen she has been doing this since 2008. She has a lot of experience in museum didactics. The menu below gives you an indication.
Muzeaal Verhalen (museum inspired stories) is founded by Anita Liemburg. Anita is a specialist in turning you into an art lover within an hour no matter the company: families, children, adults, art novices and art lovers. She is also a professionally trained guide for people who are visually impaired, or for people who suffer from dementia, and for people with special needs. Her patience, kindness and wealth of information makes her an outstanding partner on your tour through any museum.
Anita loves to share her wide range of experience with other colleagues. Her masterclasses offer guides an insight and tools in how different museum education techniques can be used for the visitors' benefit. She is often hired by VTS Nederland as a trainer and a coach, by Studio I to give courses to museums how to guide people with dementia and their loved ones and by the Reinwardt Academy to teach about Interactive Guiding.
In 2020 Anita graduated as a 'Beeldcoach' (video coach). This enables her to coach people in the educational field (museum or otherwise) to improve their way of working. Scenes recorded in their own work field are the base for the reflection and the analysis. Highlighting the good qualities is the starting point for a coaching trajectory. It is therefore a positive, motivating but most of all an effective way of learning!
