How Interpretive Techniques can Manipulate, Appropriate and Deceive

S. Marisol Asselta Castro
90 minutes
Date: September 12, 2017
Webinar Recording

As interpreters, we are constantly honing an intimately powerful skill set that can be used for “good” (inspiration, education, connection) or “evil” (manipulation, deception, abuse). Join in a lively discussion on the potential dangers behind many of our beloved techniques, with the infamous "Education of Little Tree" controversy as a focus example.

Marisol has been involved in interpretation for over 20 years as a park ranger, nature center coordinator, and tribal museum educator, and has presented globally on multicultural, indigenous, and controversial subject interpretation. She is also the volunteer Interpretation and Outreach Coordinator for Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots Latin America & Caribbean.

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

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.
