Evaluation is increasingly part of our professional lives. The services we provide to support students of all types in their journeys to, through and beyond the University of Liverpool should, we know, be evidenced based. With robust evaluation we can improve what we do for students and plan with confidence. Increasingly also, across the various HE sector agendas we work to, there are expectations that evaluation should be incorporated into normal professional and academic annual cycles.
Within many of our programmes of work, evaluation is already established; in others it is at a more developmental stage. Working as a single institution means that we should share our practice and learn from one another.
At this event, colleagues will have the chance to present examples of evaluation that are recent or are ongoing within their areas. We hope to highlight the examples of effective evaluation that have been conducted, as well as to consider the difficulties and obstacles where they exist, and to find solutions where possible. Over time we aim to establish an ‘evaluation forum’ for the circulation and sharing of ideas for methods, practical evaluation management, dissemination and links to practice.
There will be examples presented of evaluation from within SEE. There will also be examples from the faculties where they are relevant to ‘student experience’ more broadly. So, do you have something to share with colleagues within and beyond SEE? If there is something from your own practice you would like to present on please consider bringing it to this event. If you would like to talk about perspectives on evaluation, or about a methodology you have used perhaps, please let us know.
Proposals should be accompanied by a title and abstract of 100 words or less and submitted to me by Friday 8 June.
