Picture of the productAn Inspiration-based Approach to Interpretation Webinar
Jacquie Gilson
90 minutes
Date: June 21, 2016

Is interpretation too information-based and agency-focused? Dr. Gilson believes that taking an inspiration-based approach to interpretation will help us to be more visitor-focused and wholistic, i.e., engaging people at the level of their heads, hearts and hands. Jacquie, who is an Interpretation Coordinator with Parks Canada, will share the results of her doctoral research into the concept of inspiration in interpretation. Findings she will share include: the need to consider what visitors are both inspired by and to, as well as potential benefits and barriers to taking an inspiration-based approach to interpretation.

Jacquie has been actively involved in interpretation and environmental education for 30 years and has worked for parks at the national, provincial, municipal and non-profit levels. She recently completed her doctorate in social sciences with research focused on the role of inspiration in interpretation. For the last 5 years she has been an Interpretation Coordinator for Parks Canada in the beautiful Canadian rocky mountains.

Picture of the productBeyond the Interpreter’s Words
Integrating the Visitor’s Entire Context to Design Interpretive Experience Opportunities

Jon Kohl
90 Minutes
Date: October 20, 2016

Conventional interpretation focuses largely on what the interpreter says and does. Given that interpretation seeks transformation through experience, however, interpreters must consider all environmental factors that influence experience. This webinar visualizes a multi-dimensional space in which interpreters manage authenticity, biophilia, and other concepts to fashion more impactful visitor experience opportunities.

PUP Global Heritage Consortium coordinator Jon Kohl promotes emerging interpretation approaches and theories to improve heritage management. Jon is co-authoring a Spanish college textbook on interpretation, has written dozens of articles in Legacy, JIR, and elsewhere, and blogs: international heritage interpretation. See his interp CV.
