Sally Duensing, Center for Informal Learning and Schools (CILS)
Sally Duensing, is Director of the new Center for Informal Learning and Schools (CILS) at UC Santa Cruz - an NSF funded collaboration between the Exploratorium, UC Santa Cruz and King's College London, to understand and build alliances between learning in formal and informal environments to strengthen science education. In 2000 she held the Collier Chair, a one-year professorship in the Public Understanding of Science at the University of Bristol, England. Previously she was at the Exploratorium and directed program and exhibition projects. Her most recent publications include, Science as a Social Activity, ASTC Dimensions, January/February 2003, and The Object of Experience in the book Perspectives on Object-Centered Learning in Museums,, LEA pub., 2002

Barbara Goza, University of California, Santa Cruz
Dr. Barbara Goza has conducted and supervised program evaluation of educational and mental health programs for over 25 years. She has taught the principles and practices of program evaluation to undergraduate and graduate students as well as program staff members, both in the classroom and in the field. Her approach to evaluation builds on her own doctoral work in social/organizational psychology at the University of Utah, in which her emphasis was leadership. The evaluation model that best describes her work is utilization-focused evaluation, in which program evaluation is conducted with the primary purpose of providing feedback for continuous improvement, as well as for accountability. Dr. Goza's career includes an eight-year term at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, where she obtained tenure as an Associate Professor, teaching courses related to organizational psychology. Also a program manager, Dr. Goza developed and implemented the youth grants committee for the Community Foundation of Santa Cruz County, teaching a group of 12 to 20 year olds how to evaluate grant proposals for projects for and by young people. Dr. Goza has published over 10 articles and 30 conference presentations regarding program evaluation and applied research.
