The Whipple Museum
Trainer: Dr Harriet Foster
Fed up of using boring forms to ask museum goers what they think of your activity or museum? Do you rely heavily on photographs and anecdotal feedback alone for evaluating what you do? This training session will be enjoyable, informative and participative. We will look at tried and tested ways of creatively asking for audiences’ feedback.
Aimed mainly at family and child audiences, although of relevance to all museum users, learn how to build evaluation into your museum or activity so that it is fun for them to respond. And once you have that feedback, learn how easy it is to use it to make a difference – we will consider simple strategies to incorporate the audience voice into forward planning, reporting to funders and for maintaining or working towards accreditation.
By the end of the course participants will:
- Have explored creative ways to gather feedback from audiences
- Have considered how to compose questions or design evaluation activities to give meaningful information
- Know where to go for more stimulating ideas on museum evaluation
- Have learnt about best practice in museum evaluation
- Feel confident about how to action audience feedback to make a difference to their museum
Refreshments will be provided, but please make your own arrangements for lunch.
This event is fully booked.
