Standardizing Interpretive Training to Create a More Meaningful Visitor Experience
Carr, Rob
Journal of Museum Education, v41 n1 p29-37 2016
Implementing a standardized interpretive training and mentoring program across multiple departments has helped created a shared language that staff and volunteers use to collaborate and evaluate interpretive programs and products. This has led to more efficient and effective training and measurable improvements in the quality of the visitor's experience. The Wild Center developed a process that establishes interpretive standards and formal training for museum staff that teaches interpretive techniques and philosophies. Training is tailored to the diverse ways in which various museum personnel interact with visitors.
