Past event: Planning, Conducting, and Reporting Evaluations of the Outcomes of Educational Innovations

Friday, April 5, 2019

Choose either the morning or afternoon session: 9:30am to 12:30pm OR 1:30pm to 4:30pm)

Location: Oakland Dining Room

This workshop, hosted by Professor Emeritus Thomas C. Reeves, The University of Georgia, touches on the question “Why is evaluation so important?” Higher education faculty across all disciplines are under pressure to seek funding for the development of teaching and learning innovations that will improve the learning of their students. Funding sources demand a robust evaluation plan to be part of any proposal, and if an instructional innovation proposal is funded, they expect the outcomes of the project to be rigorously evaluated. This workshop is specifically designed to establish evaluation as a key strategy throughout the design, development, and implementation of educational innovations in higher education.
