FAMILY COLLECTIONS STUDY
The Chicago History Museum
Helped CHM understand how families interact with items from their collection. Insights from family observations informed the development of interpretive strategies to foster more impactful family learning experiences. This study was part of a larger museum-wide goal to make CHM more inclusive of family groups.
I managed participant recruitment and conducted data collection. Methods included: timing and tracking, structured observation, and semi-structured group interviewing. I supported analysis and report-writing with emergent interview coding, flow tracking, and narratives about participant experiences.
