Lecture Program Evaluation
This large-scale evaluation of lecture attendees was developed to gather information about audience motivation, expectations, exhibition interaction, and frequency of lecture attendance. It followed upon a pilot study involving focus groups and surveys of audience members conducted in May and June 2007. For this evaluation, we selected lecture programs that represented a diversity in program format, topic, speaker, coverage of the Museum's collection areas, and anticipated audience. In addition to surveys and interviews completed at the lectures, survey subjects were asked to participate in a post-lecture online survey to further define audience motivations for attending lectures and visiting the exhibitions discussed in those lectures.
