Data collection doesn’t have to be all surveys - join Ellen Roth, Manager of Community Research & Collaboration at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, to learn about tools that can promote engagement, conversation, and connection! These tools support engaging all audiences by considering evaluation barriers such as language, education levels, or the intimidation that evaluation can cause. Mix in a little fun and creativity and you can take these tools anywhere!

This is the second webinar in a four-webinar series on Culturally Relevant Evaluation that is available at no cost to California library workers.

Please note that the webinars are 90 minutes in length and you need to register for each webinar separately. The webinars will be recorded.
