The Tennessee Aquarium will conduct a three-year, cross-departmental project to build capacity in evaluation and develop a sustainable evaluation mindset among its staff. The project will focus on developing staff understanding of evaluation across multiple departments, including education, husbandry, marketing and visitor services. An expert consultant will facilitate the project, helping staff to develop a framework for evaluation, provide ongoing training and coaching, and develop a culture of evaluation across the institution. To help develop evaluation capacity across the Chattanooga region, the aquarium will invite other local informal education institutions to participate in the professional development workshops.
