What makes an interpretive exhibit “interpretive”?  This course will help staff new to interpretive exhibit planning; theme and objective development, and label copy development, create truly successful exhibits that effectively communicate their messages to your visitors.

This course provides guidelines and tools for planning and managing interpretive exhibit projects for parks, museums, historic sites, zoos, botanical gardens and related interpretive sites for interpretive staff, managers/heads of education, charged with developing or evaluating their interpretive exhibits, or for exhibit design consultants who have had no formal training in interpretive communications.

Course Goals:

- Develop their skills in developing an interpretive exhibit plan.
- Understand exhibit contracting needs - what should be in a Request for Proposal in selecting an exhibit planning and design firm.
- Be able to conduct an exhibit interpretive communication evaluation (existing exhibits).
- Understand how to conduct a exhibit pre-post test evaluation before exhibit construction is finalized.
- Understand that exhibits need to be cost effective - i.e. for a $20k exhibit project will you be able to document that you will receive, over the life of the exhibits, $20k in benefits?
- Be more involved and focused on the details of exhibit project management.
