Friends of New Jersey Heritage sponsors a variety of programming throughout the year, including Best Practices workshops and our signature event, the New Jersey History & Historic Preservation Conference. We will also share events by other organizations that may be of interest to our audience. All events sponsored by the Friends will be indicated. 

  • Understanding Audiences through Evaluation
    Why do visitors come to your museum? What excites (or disappoints) them about your new exhibit? Do they find your institution important in their lives? Why? Why not? Wouldn’t you love to know the answers to these questions? Imagine what it would mean to your museum to find ways to ask these questions and build a conversation with your visitors.Beverly Sheppard, former director of the Institute for Learning Innovation, will host this participatory workshop and introduce the basics of evaluation, in addition to incorporating numerous examples of practical evaluation techniques.There will be a “Part II” of this series offered over the summer which will provide more in depth training on how to gather information on your audience and apply it to your organization’s programming.
