Docent training sessions

We will soon be starting a series of docent training sessions, to be held roughly monthly, perhaps on Monday or Tuesday evenings.  These meetings will be for active docents and for people who are interested in becoming docents.  Meetings will typically last 90 minutes and include the following emphases:

  • A walk-through of some portion of the exhibit, with tips for touring it.
  • An activity of the month, suitable for incorporation into tours, typically related to the evening's walk-through tips (complementing the Lynx Open Ed brown-bag series).
  • Discussion of a topic related to logistics, procedures, policies or other general considerations.
  • Social time to interact with and get to know other docents and staff.
