The National Museum of African American History and Culture is the only national museum devoted exclusively to the documentation of African American life, history, and culture. It was established by Act of Congress in 2003, following decades of efforts to promote and highlight the contributions of African Americans. To date, the Museum has collected more than 36,000 artifacts and nearly 100,000 individuals have become members. The Museum opened to the public on September 24, 2016, as the 19th and newest museum of the Smithsonian Institution. The museum and its treasured artifacts tell a new story about America. In what will likely be the last new building on the National Mall, the museum represents a once-in-a-generation opportunity to reintroduce important ideas and themes to an eager public.

Intensive Learning Class.
The Cognitive Interview (CI) is an empirically-based interview technique that has been shown to effectively increase the quantity and quality of information obtained from interviewees in criminal and counterintelligence investigations. This presentation will provide an orientation to the CI, its underlying principles, and provide recommendations on how to incorporate the CI into an Investigative Interview model.  Videos and case examples will be provided to illustrate the underlying principles of the CI, and to highlight the effectiveness of the CI in the overall interview strategy.  The presentation is focused on the operational use of these evidence-based techniques, and geared toward investigators in the field.
Goals and Objectives:
* Describe the Cognitive Interview and scientific evidence supporting its use
* Identify the foundational principles the Cognitive Interview is based upon and how these principles can be applied throughout the Investigative Interview process
