Facilitate information sharing.
Improve community with good information.
Report findings through publications.
SciWise research initiative aims to:
SciWise enables impact evaluation and investigative capacities. This is achieved by helping researchers and practitioners to address common institutional constraints and acute limitations to robust, quality and effective visitor research and impact evaluation (e.g. Jensen 2014).
SciWise facilitates self–monitoring, collaboration and sharing of best practices. This initiative extends survey designs and methods from recent global research projects. Information collected in this project supports better understanding of key areas for visitor research.
SciWise connects science researchers to the community of practice in an improvement-oriented network. This initiative helps institutions ensure their audience insights are useful, shareable, and effectively measure visitor experiences, conservation & biodiversity awareness and learning impacts (e.g. Dawson & Jensen 2011).
SciWise uses innovative and up-to-date social science research methods and technologies. Participating institutions are empowered by strong evidence delivered efficiently through automated impact evaluation, with real-time and ongoing insights into visitor experience and outcome, meaningful comparisons and sector benchmarks.
