Education & Interpretation
Museums are increasingly conducting evaluation on their teen programs, but teen participants are often left out of such initiatives. If we are truly making programs for our teens, we need to incorporate their voices and ask the questions that are important to them. In this session, teen programs staff and a teen leader will discuss crafting student-centered evaluation that improves programming and gives teens agency to shape their own museum experience. Brainstorm forms of evaluation that might inform your own practice, and explore how you might utilize feedback from youth more effectively.
