It’s that time of year when students are heading back to school and museums are getting ready for school group visits. But how do you know what students are learning and what can you say about the long-term impacts of sometimes very short experiences? In this webinar, we will explore concrete ways to evaluate school group visit experiences and get the most valuable and helpful feedback possible.
Join Jennifer Borland, a Senior Evaluator with Rockman Et Al – an evaluation firm that specializes in museum-based program evaluation – on September 24 at 2:00 p.m. ET for an hour-long, in-depth session that explores basic techniques, helpful hints, and creative ways to evaluate school group programs and visits.
This webinar is being co-hosted by the Association of Science-Technology Centers and the Visitor Studies Association. The registration fee is $25 and includes access to an archived recording of the webinar, a detailed handout with a variety of tips, and a digital badge/certificate for participating in the webinar.
