Project Description


Faculty member: Kelly McShane
Type: Learning Objects


The learning object contains four new online modules, which can be used as learning objects in multiple online courses and disciplines. The modules will be developed by a multidisciplinary team from three faculties at Ryerson University, with expertise in psychology, nursing, early childhood studies, and politics. The modules are meant to serve as a core foundation for program evaluation, which could then be supplemented in courses with discipline-specific content. The proposed modules (between 45 and 60 minutes in length) would cover 10-15% of a a one-semester undergraduate, graduate or certificate course.

Module 1: The Basics of Program Evaluation
Module 2: Logic Models
Module 3: Qualitative Tools in Program Evaluation
Module 4: Performance Management
