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, graduate students will work together with undergraduate 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 that students will be required to complete prior to the start of the in-class session on June 3, 2019. The in-class session is a one-week intensive (June 3-7, 2019). There are no prerequisites for this course and this course is open to all graduate students. After the completion of the week-long intensive course, students will be required to submit a completed evaluation plan.
