Evaluating School Tours: A Workshop for Museum Educators

IAEA members and friends are invited to join us for lively conversation with our colleagues at the first summer Museum Education workshop sponsored by the Illinois Art Education Association.

Monday, August 18,2014

10 am – 4 pm

McLean County Art Center, 601 N East St, Bloomington, IL.

$10 Early Bird Registration before June 15th.

$15 after June 15th.

Registration closes on August 1st.

This program will offer opportunities to learn about program evaluation and to meet colleagues from around the state. The morning will begin with an examination of school programs goals. We will then work collaboratively to develop a range of evaluation strategies, and to consider ways to use findings to guide program refinement.

The workshops will be facilitated by Rebecca Shulman Herz, a professional Museum Educator with over 15 years of experience in the field. She recently moved to Illinois from New York City, where she worked at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and The Noguchi Museum. Her experience includes gallery teaching, educator training, and program planning and evaluation. She has written a book, Looking at Art in the Classroom, which outlines the inquiry-based strategies used by both the Guggenheim Museum’s Learning Through Art school outreach program and school tours at both the Guggenheim and Noguchi Museums.
