The Western Michigan University (WMU) Evaluation Center and Extended University Programs are developing an online professional development program in evaluation. The learner-centered program will include a mix of live and self-paced instruction, including webinars, videos, text, assessments, and practice exercises. The following qualities set this program apart from existing academic and ad hoc evaluation training programs:
Equity-informed: As a critical aspect of high-quality evaluation practice, the curriculum is infused with guidance on how to address equity throughout the evaluation process.
Practical: Instruction is connected to practical application so learners can use what they learn right away.
Accessible: Barriers to learning about evaluation are minimized.
Engaging: Dynamic, multi-media content maintains learners’ attention and serves diverse learning styles.
