Evaluating Educational Delivery Models at Zoos Victoria Public
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
To assist Zoos Victoria in their goal of becoming the world’s leading zoo-based conservation organisation, we established a system to determine the effectiveness of the three different educational delivery models at Melbourne Zoo. By analysing observations, surveys, and teacher interviews from school excursions, we were able to detect numerous correlations and trends between the data sets. By comparing the efficiency of each model in increasing students’ understanding of the zoo’s conservation campaigns while also promoting positive behavioural changes, we were able to determine which delivery model was the most effective in achieving Zoos Victoria’s mission. Recommendations could then be made to the organisation about improvements to the different models for future educational programs.
