Integrating Evaluation for Learning Throughout Your Program

June 2020

Event Type


Abstract: Incorporating evaluation theory and embedded evaluation practices has created continuous learning for the Postdoc Academy program. Embedded evaluation incorporates the voices of faculty, staff, researchers, and participants throughout the program. This approach allows the Postdoc Academy team to continually integrate learning from preliminary, formative, and summative evaluation. During this interactive session, participants will explore and learn how to apply 1) choosing evaluation frameworks, 2) embedding evaluation within a program structure and 3) integrating evaluation learning in the context of their own programs.

The Postdoc Academy is a new digital and in-person professional development program that incorporates evidence-based content with the voices of postdocs and professionals to support individuals throughout their postdoctoral position.
