About the Professional Development Modules

The professional development modules are designed for users who:

  • want an introduction to all the major components of an evaluation
  • are novice evaluators and want to learn more/self-instruct
  • are experienced evaluators and want expertise/advice in a targeted area

The modules present step-by-step strategies with scenarios and case studies of how the strategies can be applied to specific evaluation projects. Sometimes the modules also present exercises in which the user is provided with the opportunity to apply discrete technical skills that are taught as part of the strategy.
