The Universal Design of Educational Programs workshop is intended for museum educators who develop and conduct educational programs or train those who do. Invited workshop participants will have a hands-on opportunity to apply NISE Net's universal design guidelines to a current NISE Net program and collect feedback on their progam from people with disabilities using the Team-Based Inquiry approach.
The workshop focused on preparing museum educators to engage the public in conversations about the relationship between nanotechnology and society. Workshop participants learned new hands-on activities, full-length programs, and ideas for facilitating visitor experiences in the Nano mini-exhibition. The workshop provided specific training and skill-building in nano and society content, conversation facilitation, and improving and learning from professional practice (Team Based Inquiry). The skills developed in the workshop are readily applied to floor facilitation of other topics, as well. Upon completion, all participants received activity kits, take-home training resources, and post-workshop follow up opportunities.
