Seminars and workshops are ways to engage adult learners in a museum setting. Rollie Adams and Patricia Hall explain how children and adults learn differently.

Using these differences as a guide, Adams and Hall provide tips for planning a seminar or workshop that meets the needs of adult learners.

Topics include: identifying resources, selecting objectives, determining format, and developing an evaluation plan.

Authors also explain how to conduct seminars and workshops once planning has been completed.

This section covers the logistics of the actual event, such as determining what materials to provide, like name tags, publications, and so forth, and managing time during the program.
