RE: Bilingual label examples

October 19th 2017

Hi Amanda – all of our labels are bilingual. Many in our newly opened Canadian and Indigenous galleries are now trilingual – in the Indigenous language of the culture (or artist) where the work is from. All of the National museums in Ottawa (and others in Canada) have bilingual labels. I’m not sure what exactly you are looking for – layout or language? I can snap a few pics and forward to your email if that would be helpful? andrea ____________________________ *Andrea Gumpert* Educator | Educatrice ...Continue Reading

Re: Survey Link: Art use in education programming with underserved populations

October 19th 2017

Hi Margaret,Some volunteers and ex-staff have taken the survey, so if you think you can contribute anything about programs happening in museums with special populations, consider clicking though (you have to agree to the informed consent but all other parts are optional). I hope to publish it and probably present it a few places, but the first step is just submitting it to my university as the last step in my masters degree. :)Where are you in the country?All the best,JackieSent from my iPhoneOn Oct 19, 2017, at 7: ...Continue Reading

Re: Survey Link: Art use in education programming with underserved populations Hi Jacqueline,I am currently an independent contractor working on projects related to your area of study. It won't be appropriate for me to complete the survey, but I'm very curious to learn more about your results.

RE: Bilingual label examples

October 18th 2017

Hi, Amanda, We are interested in this, too. Please share any responses that you get! Also, we are curious about examples of institutions with bilingual labels that have English as the second language. Does anybody have examples of that label structure?

Bilingual label examples

October 18th 2017

Hello everyone,   I am looking for examples of well-designed bilingual labels, both object/chat labels and wall vinyl. The ones I’ve personally encountered were pretty straightforward, but I was wondering whether there were more creative approaches out there. Thanks for any suggestions or leads!   Best wishes, Amanda   *Amanda Potter* Curator of Education and Interpretation Zimmerli Art Museum at Rutgers University 71 Hamilton Street New Brunswick, NJ 08901 Tel 848.932.7237, ext. 26766 Fax 732.932.8201 ...Continue Reading

RE: Docent service requirements

October 18th 2017

Hi Kristi, This is long, so please accept my apologies in advance. We try to start with what will provide guests with the best experience, as I’m sure you do. Incidentally, I use that phrasing when a docent gets cranky with me over a change in procedures or policy. And I don’t hesitate to mention that our program is dynamic and will always change, and if/when it no longer matches their wants and needs we will support their decision to look for volunteer opportunities elsewhere. (At times we have encouraged and e ...Continue Reading

RE: POSSIBLE SPAM: RE: Docent service requirements

October 18th 2017

Up until last year, our docent handbook didn’t have an accountability policy, only vague mentions of “appropriate measures” for failing to meet expectations.  L&I staff have had an informal three strikes policy with docents that have repeatedly fallen short of their responsibilities, but it wasn’t formalized in any tangible way.  I put it into writing and asked a few member of our docent advisory council for input, then added it to the docent handbook shortly after. It’s definitely not a popular topic a ...Continue Reading

RE: Docent service requirements

October 18th 2017

Would there be a way to only allow your fully trained docents to be scheduled for tours?  Could your trained docents “mentor” the untrained ones.  You could add a “shadowing” component to training. When I was the Volunteer Manager at a botanic garden I awarded my Volunteers who completed a certain number of hours of training in different aspects of greenhouse production certificates of completion.  This gave them some credibility at competence and also allowed them some bragging rights.  The l ...Continue Reading
