Course description

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). During a week-long intensive course, undergraduate students will work together with graduate students and community stakeholders. Students will work through case studies (project-based curricula) to develop evaluative responses to community-informed issues.

This course includes four online modules students will be required to complete prior to the start of the in-class session on June 3, 2019. There are no prerequisites for this course and it is open to all undergraduate students. After the completion of the week-long intensive course, students will be required to submit a completed evaluation plan. There is no final examination.
