Evaluation in the Community Context


Introduction to the basics of evaluation, including the foundations, approaches, steps, strategies, and ethical considerations of evaluation, with an application across diverse disciplines (e.g., health care, community development, government, not-for-profit).

Course Objectives

During a week-long intensive course, students and community stakeholders will engage in interactive lectures to explore evaluation theory, and collaboratively develop evaluative responses to community-informed issues. This course will integrate blended learning principles, with lectures and activities in the morning, and facilitated group case study work in the afternoons. Case studies will come directly from local community organizations, and learners will develop an evaluation framework by the end of the week.
