Sharing Evaluation: blog series published 3/1/2013

London Museums Group and Audiences UK, with assistance from NMDC, have published a series of blogs looking at the challenges and benefits of sharing evaluation and audience research.

The conversation starts with a blog by Nicky Boyd, an evaluation and audience research consultant, who looks at the barriers to better sharing of the results of evaluation. The Museum Association's Maurice Davies responds by looking at the Evaluating Evaluation project (supported by the Wellcome Trust and Heritage Lottery Fund).

The remaining blogs are all provided by representatives of NMDC institutions: Royal Museums Greenwich, Science Museum, Norfolk Museums and Archaeology Service, St Fagans: National History Museum, and Tyne and Wear Archives and Museum Service. They look at case studies and museum practice about using and sharing evaluation, and how this has or could improve audiences' experiences. 

All the blogs can be read on the London Museums Group website here and on the Audiences UK website here, and other blogs by NMDC members (on a variety of different subjects) can be read here.
