Building Capacity for Evaluation in Your Institution
An in-house evaluator and an evaluation consultant discuss the value of growing capacity for conducting audience research and evaluation. Panelists will define capacity building, explain the basic elements of evaluation, and give tips for museums looking to conduct evaluation studies. Attendees will be invited to plan an evaluation scenario.
