Fostering A Growth Mindset In Interpretation
Jacquie Gilson
90 minutes

Webinar Recording

Today’s interpreters need to be open to new approaches and ideas. This means having a “growth mindset”, i.e., believing hard work, good strategies and input from others are keys to success. Join Dr. Jacquie Gilson for this interactive webinar as she shares the basics of “fixed” versus “growth” mindsets and her experiences with “up, down and all around” feedback with interpreters. We’ll also talk about fostering a growth mindset through using inspiration as a foundation, dialogic interpretation and audience-centered programming.

Jacquie has been actively involved in interpretation and environmental education for 30 years and has worked 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 six years she has been an Interpretation Coordinator for Parks Canada in the beautiful Canadian rocky mountains.

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.
