UEval: Evaluation Course

An experiential learning course for students and community stakeholders to sustainably build student and community evaluation capacity. Course objectives have been developed to align with the Canadian Evaluation Society (CES) core competencies for evaluation work.

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.

  • Classes will run from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm (MST), June 1-5, 2020 online.

  • Learners will be required to complete four (4) online modules prior to the first synchronous session.

The Canadian Evaluation Society (CES) contributed to the development of the course to align to as many competencies as possible so the participants and their organizations advance their mission by practicing ethical and high quality evaluation.

Who can participate?

UEval is designed to accommodate both beginner students with no prior evaluation experience and those who have an advanced working knowledge of evaluation. Learners from across all disciplines are welcome.
