Poster: Visitor Interests and the Dynamics of Interpreter-Visitor Conversations in National Parks

July 19th, 2019 | RESEARCH

This poster was presented at the 2018 Visitor Studies Association Conference. iSWOOP is a multi-year, multi-focus project, bringing national park-based research to visitors through innovative scientist-park ranger collaborations.

As part of this study, researchers at the Institute for Learning Innovation set out to understand how visitor interests emerge during interpreter-facilitated conversations in national parks; how visitor interests relate to topics and facilitation strategies used by interpreters; and to what degree interactions might spark or reinforce ongoing interests.
