Certified Interpretive Guide (CIG) Skills for Docents


The National Museum of Toys and Miniatures implements Certified Interpretive Guide (CIG) theory and skills when creating interpretation and training volunteer docents. Participants in this workshop will 1) learn about the CIG program offered through the National Association for Interpretation, 2) discover how T/m volunteer docents are trained to use CIG skills in interpretive visitor interactions, and 3) have the opportunity to apply CIG theory and skills to an existing program at their home institutions.

 Bus transportation is provided to and from the hotel.
