I am working on developing an educational program for adults at our small historic house museum.
While, I feel very confident about creating hands-on programming for kids, I am unsure of how to do so for adults! So, I am hoping to immerse myself in lots of adult educational resources: to start reading about best practices, and to start attending some notable programs that I can use as a model. If anyone has recommendations- programs I should check out for inspiration or helpful reading, I would so appreciate your suggestions.
