Until now there has been no manual available which addresses the key issues involved in teaching interpretation to others. The Interpretive Training Handbook: Strategies, Tips, Handouts and Practical Learning Experiences for Teaching Interpretation to Others at last fills this gap. It distils the experience of one of the world’s leading interpretive trainers, John Veverka, and is based on his training techniques and exercises developed over three decades, and currently used in his university level interpretation training courses. Designed for use with a wide range of specialist staff - including interpretors, educators, designers, curators, gallery “explainers”, guides and volunteers - in museums, galleries, science centres, historic houses and sites, parks, zoos and commercial tours, the book includes sample pre-and post-test “exams” that let you check if your training is actually working.
“Interpretation training in a box! It ’s all here: the principles, the ideas, the strategies - and a wealth of practical and proven training materials to reproduce and use.”
