Insight for Learning Practices serves clients engaged in a variety of collaborative projects. Working with many of the client’s partners becomes an important part of the process. To better serve the client’s needs, we sometimes bring in our own partners. This may be a transcription service like Kelsey Transcripts or others who can help with pieces of the project, or it might be collaboration with a colleague with complementary skills.
Insight for Learning Practices and Tisdal Consulting have developed successful collaborations on several projects. Having multiple perspectives as well as common and complementary skill sets can make for a winning combination, especially on larger projects.
Carey Tisdal, Director, Tisdal Consulting, and Kit Klein share an interest in youth programs and informal learning environments. Both use quantitative and qualitative methods. Both bring skills in project design, literature review, working with clients, data analysis, and communicating findings. Tisdal brings skills in the evaluation of exhibits and technology-based learning (i.e., websites, film, computer interactives) to the collaboration. Klein has substantial expertise in the evaluation informal learning programs and school-based programming.
