- formal presentations on current research in free-choice learning;
- one- and multi-day staff training workshops in designing and conducting your own front-end and formative evaluations.
For example, we recently completed a series of workshops with staff from the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore, MD. This cross-departmental group experimented with a variety of methodologies and developed learning outcomes for exhibitions.
We held another series of workshops for Education Department staff at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City, using their innovative Youth Insights afterschool program as a laboratory to practice evaluation strategies they could implement themselves.
In our Summer 2009 newsletter we offered some fast and fun evaluation recipes to get your conversation with visitors started.
