The blog Essential Evaluators has introduced a series of posts called Snapshots, which provide periodic glimpses into our individual and collective post-COVID-19 evaluation experiences. These posts address real-life problems and their practical solutions, from methodological modifications to established protocols, to adaptations leveraging staff reductions, to strategies for integrating physical distancing and safety standards into data collection. For our first Snapshot, evaluators from six museums were invited to share their experiences: Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, Space Center Houston, Missouri Historical Society, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Cincinnati Art Museum, and the Saint Louis Science Center.
This CARE-apy session will feature two of those contributors, Juli Goss, Director of Audience Research and Evaluation at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, and Caitlin Tracey-Miller, Assistant Director of Visitor Research and Evaluation at Cincinnati Art Museum, as well as blog co-curator, Laureen Trainer of Trainer Evaluation. Join us to learn more about the discussions that went into making changes in relation to data collection, how the process has been working, and next steps and new questions that have arisen as we continue to work through social distancing restrictions, uncertain reopenings, visitor trepidation around returning to indoor spaces, and how we are all coping with living through a pandemic.
