Useful Assessment and Evaluation in Language Education: Spring 2017
Sat, May 6, 2017, 9:30 AM – 3:30 PM EDT
This workshop will provide an overview of how to design and implement program evaluation in language programs. The facilitators will show:
- How to plan useful evaluations in language programs;
- How to identify evidence, or "indicators", of program quality, effectiveness, needs, and student learning;
- Appropriate use of common tools for collecting evaluation information: interviews, focus groups, and questionnaires; and
- Time frames and needed capacity for implementing evaluation in language programs and institutions.
Breakfast, lunch and certificate of completion will be provided.
This workshop was first provided as the pre-conference workshop of GURT 2016 and received excellent reviews from participants. As an introduction to program evaluation, it is relevant for language educators new to program evaluation who are looking to learn practical techniques to implement in their courses and programs. Please share this information with others who may be interested.
