How to Craft Strong Interpretive Themes according to the Theory of Sam Ham

Jon Kohl October 31 and November 7 (2 sessions)
11 am Central America Time  
Register at www.pupconsortium.net/webinarios
Dr. Sam Ham, world expert in thematic interpretation, demonstrated the value and centrality of using a theme (or message) to guide development of effective interpretive products in service of heritage conservation. Despite the popularity of his books, many interpreters still do not understand why we use strong interpretive themes or messages and furthermore don’t know how to create them. This webinar is based on Jon Kohl’s new book called Interpretive Theme Writer’s Field Guide: Pocket Companion to Sam Ham’s Interpretation — Making a Difference on Purpose which will be published by NAI in November. The webinar consists of two sessions: 1) theory and examples of strong themes and 2) evaluation of themes written by webinar participants.

Jon Kohl is founding director of the PUP Global Heritage Consortium which promotes interpretation development especially in Latin America. He is author of more than 245 publications, 35 of which ran in NAI serials. His works include a book on holistic heritage planning and a science fiction romance novella. In addition he writes a blog about heritage interpretation in which he covers many issues regarding theme writing. www.facebook.com/heritageinterpretation.

In November of this year NAI will publish its newest book of the InterpPress series. The Interpretive Theme Writer’s Field Guide is the product of Jon’s relationship with Sam Ham since the 1990s and includes as well contributions from Ted Cable, Shelton Johnson, Clark Hancock, the PUP Consortium, and NAI. In addition to this book, in 2019 Jon and lead co-author Marisol Mayorga await publication of a new university textbook in Spanish about heritage interpretation which in English is called Essence of Interpretation: Holistic Vision to Experience Tourism and Conservation in the Natural and Cultural Heritage of Latin America, to be published by the university distance learning university press in Costa Rica.
