    Hello museum colleagues,

    Getting ready for Fall and Winter seasons? Join me for my upcoming Sticky Storytelling free webinars or go all-in and join an upcoming Virtual Certified Interpretive Guide course.  Whether you are delivering programs or supporting those that do, ensure your stories are told in ways that inspire, engage, and activate your audience.  The things that matter to you can matter to more people!

    The Virtual Certified Interpretive Guide course developed by the National Association of Interpretation is a great foundation.  Subjects covered in this 32 hour virtual course include engagement-focused theming, research, making programs relevant and relatable, keeping the enjoyability in the education, interactivity, and connecting programs to missions with measurable objectives.

    Upcoming Virtual classes (taught through zoom):

    September 25-October 3

    October 11-16 * Special Class - see below

    November 14-21

    *Enriched Certified Interpretive Guide Virtual Class

    On October 11-16, Kristin Robinson of Stage Naked will partner with Monique Thompson of Raindrop Naturalist to present a special Virtual Certified Interpretive Guide class.  All coursework will be the same, but the discussions and insights will be enriched by their combined specialties in:

    • Restorative Practices
    • Dialogue and Inquiry based programs
