Evaluation is a process where teachers, groups of students and/or their institution, find out, on the basis of their own perceptions, the overall quality of a programme, a course, or a teacher. Evaluation is generally part of a formative process aimed at improving standards. Evaluation is more than student feedback but often includes student feedback as a key source of evidence.
|Evaluation in Course Design||Workshop slides to support staff learning when designing effective evaluation strategies. Evaluation systems, methods and how these inform course design are included.|
|Evaluation techniques of teaching: focus groups and Nominal Group Technique||
Workshop slides developed to introduce and demonstrate the Nominal Group Technique and a new, combined two-staged approach: Nominal Focus Group, when working with students to gather feedback.
Workshop slides on using focus groups, in higher education research and evaluation settings. How can we decide whether to use a focus group vs interviews or surveys? What does a focus group look like? Methods used along with strengths and weaknesses are included.
|Maximising the impact of your project||
Details of a workshop (2006) from the Centre for Excellence for Enquiry-Based Learning (CEEBL) offered on ways to maximise the impact of an educational development project.
|The Nominal Group Technique - a practical guide for facilitators||
This guide aims to provide information on a research/evaluation method which can be used to gather student feedback. This guide comes from an ELESIG project: Using the nominal group technique with clickers to research student experiences of e-learning.
|Using the nominal group technique with clickers to research student experiences of e-learning: a project report||
An ELESIG project that explores how The University of Liverpool researched and trialled text-entry clickers in order to establish their use in carrying out student feedback sessions. This includes the incorporation of the Nominal Group Technique.
