EvaluATE staff, Eileen Lewis, John Kmiec, and Jane Ostrander
The focus of this webinar is on helping new ATE grantees and evaluators understand the role of evaluation in ATE grants, particularly on administrative/managerial aspects of evaluation. At the start of a new grant, it’s important for grant staff and evaluators to be clear about their responsibilities, deliverables, timelines, procedures, and information needs with respect to evaluation. This webinar will be a live Q&A session with an panel of experts who have extensive experience with and diverse perspectives on ATE evaluation, including Eileen Lewis (University of California - Berkeley, Cañada College, and former co-Lead of the ATE program), Jane Ostrander (PI, Problem-Based Learning), John Kmiec (Evaluator, Pearl River Community College ATE grant), and EvaluATE staff. These ATE veterans will answer participants’ questions and share tips and tools to facilitate the implementation and management of ATE project and center evaluations.
Webinar participants should prepare for this live session by reviewing materials from EvaluATE’s November 2010 webinar “Getting Started with your ATE Evaluation” (see links below). That webinar included presentations and discussions on (1) the role evaluation in ATE projects, (2) working with an evaluator, (3) content and dissemination of evaluation reports, and (4) resources available from EvaluATE.
