How Do We Know It Works? Evaluating Learning Technology Projects

A Webinar and Discussion for OSU Educators

Wednesday, May 4, 2011 9:45 AM - 1:00 PM

The seminar is a practical overview of how diverse educational technology projects in academia can be evaluated with limited institutional resources.  It will provide an overview of a research-based yet practical approach to evaluating instructional technology projects, which will in turn inform the value of emerging technologies to teaching and learning.  

To prepare for the session, participants are encouraged to bring examples of projects and goals they are interested in evaluating.  

It will be in Kidder Hall 202, which has  been recently renovated with the latest technology for webinars. Come check it out.

The room will open at 9:30, and pre-discussion will begin at 9:45.

The event is sponsored by OSU's TAC/Media Services with The Center for Teaching and Learning.

Coffee and snacks will be provided.  

Please RSVP by 5:00 Tuesday 5/3 to: Jon.Dorbolo@oregonstate.edu

The webinar is Produced by ELI/EDUCAUSE and presented by Clare van den Blink, Assistant Director, Information Technologies, Cornell University. See the event page at http://net.educause.edu/eli115

This is a practical work session that will involve participation from our local group (by voice, chat, and backchannel) and local breakout sessions.  Come prepared to be involved!  

No prior technology expertise is required, though this session is geared to educators who are or want to be utilizing technology effectively in their teaching or educational outreach projects.
 
As a result of this seminar, participants will be able to:

  • Create an evaluation plan for an academic technology project that is tied to their project assumptions and strategies.
  • Select project goals that can be evaluated.
  • Identify relevant indicators and data-collection methods to evaluate project goals.
  • Describe a range of strategies when conducting a literature review to inform evaluation planning.
  • Develop an evaluation data-analysis strategy and reporting format for their projects.

We hope that you can join us.  If you cannot but are interested in the topic, please let us know so that we may include you in the ongoing discussion.
