Museum and other non-profit professionals have begun to realize that the complete visitor experience is the key to repeat attendance, successful fundraising, and building audience loyalty. Taking lessons learned by successful experience-shapers in the for-profit world, Stephanie Weaver distills this knowledge for museums and other organizations which depend on visitor satisfaction for success. Is your institution welcoming? Are the bathrooms clean? Does the staff communicate well? Are there enough places to sit? These practical matters may mean more to creating a loyal following than any exhibit or program the institution develops. Weaver breaks the visitor experience down to 8 steps and provides practical guidance to museums and related institutions on how to create optimal visitor experiences for each of them. In a workshop-like format, she uses multiple examples, exercises, and resource links to walk the reader through the process.

In this book, Selma Wassermann, international expert on classroom interactions, sets the stage for the relevance of the interactive teaching method, provides data and classroom examples that support its effectiveness at all student learning levels and in different subject areas, and offers detailed and specific help for teachers who are considering embarking on this approach to teaching. Coverage includes "teaching to the big ideas," preparing students, and the basics of developing good listening, responding, and questioning skills in an interactive discussion. A chapter on learning to become reflective practitioners deals with how teachers may become more aware of what they are saying and in better control of framing responses and questions in the art of interactive teaching. The book draws from the author’s long experience and study of interactive teaching using the case method rooted in the Harvard Business School’s approach to large class instruction.

Relevance: Matter More harnesses the power of authenticity, mastery, empathy, and action to help people and companies become more relevant in their lives and in the marketplace. In today's age of commoditization, people, products, brands, and companies are becoming interchangeable. The competition to stake a flag on the career path of one's dreams grows fiercer, and downsizing can reverse fortunes in a heartbeat. Security is a myth. People and companies are asking some very fundamental questions, "Am I relevant, or am I simply replaceable? Is there a way to matter more in this world?" Phil Styrlund and Tom Hayes, with Marian Deegan, have identified four key dynamics of relevance--authenticity, mastery, empathy, and action--in a formula that can be applied to the life of a person, an organization, or a product. Drawing upon their personal and business experience, and upon examples from the lives of Theodore Roosevelt, Ada Lovelace, Harper Lee, Ulysses S. Grant, and other men and women whose accomplishments illuminate history, they have created a powerful formula for achieving relevance. As business leaders working in marketing and sales, the authors have developed methods to distinguish themselves, and their clients, from the masses. In Relevance, they share their toolbox of strategies and tactics to help people elevate their relevance--in both their professional and personal lives. They believe that the decision to put authenticity, mastery, and empathy into action is the great differentiator between dreams of potential and the reality of accomplishment.This lively book brings together the best thinking of today with the best thinking ever to help anyone who truly wants to matter more. Styrlund and Hayes invite readers to apply these principles, and explore what it means to matter more in their own lives, and in the lives of others.

The Paradox Of Relevance

Selected by Choice magazine as an Outstanding Academic Title for 2011 Between 1990 and 1996, the U.S. Congress passed market-based reforms in the areas of civil rights, welfare, and immigration in a series of major legislative initiatives. These were announced as curbs on excessive rights and as correctives to a culture of dependency among the urban poor—stock images of racial and cultural minorities that circulated well beyond Congress. But those images did not circulate unchallenged, even after congressional opposition failed. In The Paradox of Relevance, Carol J. Greenhouse provides a political and literary history of the anthropology of U.S. cities in the 1990s, where—below the radar—New Deal liberalism, with its iconic bond between society and security, continued to thrive. The Paradox of Relevance opens in the midst of anthropology's so-called postmodern crisis and the appeal to relevance as a basis for reconciliation and renewal. The search for relevance leads outward to the major federal legislation of the 1990s and the galvanic political tensions between rights- and market-based reforms. Anthropologists' efforts to inform those debates through "relevant" ethnography were highly patterned, revealing the imprint of political tensions in shaping their works' central questions and themes, as well as their organization, narrative techniques, and descriptive practices. In that sense, federal discourse dominates the works' demonstrations of ethnography's relevance; however, the authors simultaneously resist that dominance through innovations in their own literariness—in particular, drawing on diasporic fiction and sociolegal studies where these articulate more agentive meanings of identity and difference. The paradox of relevance emerges with the realization that in the context of the times, affirming the relevance of ethnography as value-neutral science required the textual practices of advocacy and art.
