Sharing Best Practice in Science Communication and Research and Evaluation

9 June 2017

BGCI, in collaboration with Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, Nottingham Trent University, Jardim Botânico da Universidade de Lisboa and MUSE Museo delle Scienze are currently designing the content for the next two modules of LearnToEngage; a blended learning course aimed at botanic garden professionals.

We now need to establish ‘best practice’ and identify training needs in Science Communication and Research and Evaluation as base line research. To help us to do this, we would be very grateful if you would complete our survey and pass it on the any colleagues who may be interested. There are only 25 questions so it should not take you too long.  All data will be used anonymously.

We really appreciate your time!


LearnToEngage is an exciting new suite of professional development modules for botanic garden and museum educators in Italy, Portugal and the UK. These blended learning modules (a mixture of online and on-site learning) will enhance engagement of your audiences, and support the vital educational role of botanic gardens and museums. LearnToEngage is funded through the European Commission’s Erasmus+ programme and provides an interactive, collaborative experience with both online and on-site provision. The four modules are: 
• Interpretation 
• Working with Diverse Audiences 
• Science Communication 
• Research and Evaluation


We are now accepting applications for the first two modules – Interpretation and Working with Diverse Audiences. Deadline: 30th June - Apply!
