My name is Aubrey Henriksen, and I have just accepted the position of evaluation coordinator at the Creative Discovery Museum, a mid-sized children’s museum in Chattanooga Tennessee.
Right now we are revving up to implement a grant received from IMLS to create a consistent and sustainable evaluation process for assessing the impacts of our programs and exhibits. Our goal is to create a culture of evaluation in our museum, and to share our journey with the museum community.
Soon we will start defining our intended impacts, prioritizing outcomes, developing measurable indicators, and implementing data collection strategies.
Follow along on our adventures. Share in our successes. Learn from our mistakes. Watch our journey to evaluation capacity unfold.
