This workshop is for individuals (or groups) working within health care, education and academic systems who are currently involved, or considering getting involved in developing and evaluating educational programs or training interventions within their organizations.
Understanding how to think critically about program evaluation practice is essential to developing meaningful evaluation questions and supporting organizational learning.
In this workshop, participants will be invited to explore how they can engage in meaningful and practical program evaluation. Through interactive lectures, practical exercises and group discussions, we will help participants understand how to select, apply, and implement tailored approaches to program evaluation that can lead to positive curricular and system change.
By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to describe key features of sound program evaluation practice, understand how they can use evaluation to help address an educational problem or issue in their practice, and outline a basic evaluation strategy that can be adapted to the needs and resources of their local institution.
