The pandemic has led many museums to develop new types of products and practices. However, with limited social interactions, it can be very difficult to know what our audiences need and whether new products are working as intended. In this online workshop, we explored a set of resources that anyone can use to improve educational experiences and professional practices even during times of limited social interaction. Team-based inquiry (TBI) is a practitioner-led evaluation model that involves posing inquiry questions, collecting data to investigate those questions, analyzing and reflecting on the data, and making changes to improve practice. The NISE Network’s TBI resources were shared during this workshop, including a published guide with handouts and activities as well as a suite of training videos available online. Participants learned about the four stages of TBI and heard how museum professionals around the country with no prior evaluation experience have used TBI to improve their work.
