This public forum is a continuation of the Let's Talk project. The project addresses the lack of a generalizable body of knowledge about dialogue, the need for instructional models and theory to inform the use of Dialogue programming, and the opportunity to prepare future museum professionals. In this forum, we invite you to become part of the part conversation by discussing the role of facilitated dialogue in museum-based programming, sharing new examples of innovative practice and research, and collaborating with your colleagues in the field on next steps for the field.

This group was created to allow CAISE staff to demo the groups functionality.
Private Foundation focused on many areas of scientific research. Each member brings there own expertise to the table and is given individual research for a certain period of time. Meetings every month go over recently completed research and assign new task + talk about upcoming issues. Friendly, hard-working common-sense people wanted. Drop me an application on firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll get back ASAP.
Welcome to the first national workshop in support of the Multi-Institution Science Center Effects Study. This NSF-funded project, which includes two workshops and two online forum discussions, is designed to directly support a national research effort to advance understanding of the effects science centers have on their communities. On October 17, 2014, a group of research and science center experts from across the country will convene for the first of two workshops to learn more about the multi-institution research study and discuss how the research can best address science center questions, issues, and concerns. The goal of this first online forum is to begin these conversations and prepare participants for the upcoming workshop.The project is led by John Falk, Oregon State University, Institute for Learning Innovation. The workshop and forum will also be moderated by: Scott Pattison, Institute for Learning Innovation, Oregon Museum of Science and Industry; Kate Tinworth, ExposeYourMuseum; David Bibas, California Science Center; Steve Fifield, Franklin Institute; and Sharon Kortman, Arizona Science Center.
