Evaluating Innovative Educational Initiatives

Tuesday, February 10 | 3:15PM–4:00PM | Laguna, Fourth Floor
Session Type: Professional Development
Planning the evaluation of educational initiatives is often the most difficult task of any project. Universities need these evaluations to gather evidence to support their continued success as well as make informed decisions for future planning. How can a project provide the right information to the right people at the right time? This session will examine various models of educational evaluation, along with examples of how they can be used to evaluate projects such as the development of MOOCs or the redesign of learning spaces. Challenges, opportunities, and lessons learned will be discussed by participants to help them create an effective evaluation plan for their own initiatives.

OUTCOMES: Examine different models of evaluation and how they can be applied to educational initiatives on campus * Examine and discuss examples of evaluations * Discuss the opportunities and challenges they present and lessons learned for your institution
