Supporting Intergenerational Communication

In this module, participants will explore the benefits of fostering intergenerational communication within families—that is, encouraging visitors of different ages within the group to interact and talk with each other as they engage with the exhibit. Participants will hone their skills at noticing when and how intergenerational communication happens, reflect on their own role in supporting intergenerational communication, and brainstorm strategies to integrate into their practice. Before launching this module, be sure to review the tips and background information for session leaders in the full guide.
