1.30pm – 5.oopm  (both days)  

Tutor: Will Hirstle

This online course via Zoom will look at best practice in producing interpretation about wildlife in a range of contexts. It will be of interest to anyone communicating with the public about wildlife and will explore how you can engage visitors in different settings, such as zoos, nature reserves, parks and rewilding projects. It will cover self-guided media, both of the ‘traditional’ kind, (e.g. outdoor panels and printed guides), and those that use new technology.

You will learn about the principles that guide interpretation and explore the qualities of effective communication with visitors. The tutor will then guide you through the four phases of creating interpretation – planning, generating content, design and production – looking at how those qualities can be applied. There will be lots of practical guidance and exercises, covering text writing, working with designers and accessibility for people with disabilities, as well as technical advice on topics like digital images, materials and sustainability.
