We have found two inspiring speakers who will share their research/evaluation projects with us: Jana Hawig from DASA, Dortmund and Natália Candido Vendrasco from the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile. They will both give a presentation of 20 minutes with time for questions afterwards. The last half hour of the meeting will be an informal session to catch up with colleagues.

Responsive mediation in guided visits to non-formal science education settings in Brazil: a multiple case study

By Natália Candido Vendrasco, Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile

This presentation delves into mediation in guided visits to non-formal settings of science education with living collections, such as aquariums and zoos. The research analyzes the role of human mediation in shaping these experiences to best fit physical, personal, and sociocultural contexts, thereby enhancing the equity and inclusion of such visits, based on their responsiveness.

Natália Candido Vendrasco has a Master's Degree in Science Education and a PhD in Education at the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile. During the last 10 years, she worked as an educator in various non-formal science education settings in Brazil and Chile and as a teacher trainer at different universities.

Evaluating Storytelling in "Pia says Goodbye" - Methods and Findings of a Mixed Methods Approach

By Jana Hawig from DASA, Dortmund

Jana will be talking about a 6-year DASA project that aimed to evaluate the impact of storytelling in the temporary exhibition "Pia says Goodbye" using a mixed methods approach. She will give a summary of the five methods conducted, of the analysis process, and the findings including insights into the lessons learned on in-house research.

Jana Hawig is curator at the DASA Working World Exhibition in Dortmund, Germany. Besides curating interactive exhibitions on work environment issues, she is project leader of the DASA-project "Potentials and challenges of storytelling in exhibitions". In her PhD research she currently works on the definition of exhibition narrations in Museum Studies at the University of Würzburg, Germany, using exhibition analyses and transmedia storytelling. Jana received her B.A. in Media Studies and History from the University of Trier (Germany) and her M.A. in Museum Studies from the International Centre for Cultural and Heritage Studies at Newcastle University (UK). Her research of the master programme on the use of historic images in World War museums was published in the volume "Views of Violence" (eds. Jörg Echternkamp and Stephan Jaeger).

We hope to see you there!
