Evaluation Practices for Informal/Self-Paced Adult Learning: April 13-May 1, 2009
Facilitators: Caren LevineCaren Levine and William OwenWilliam Owen

Informal learning is a key part of our personal development. It is also becoming a larger part of our working lives. But in an era of increasing accountability, we begin to question the role of evaluation for informal / self-paced adult learning...

What are existing rationales for evaluation of informal / self-paced adult learning (for the learner and the provider/developer)? What accountability do we have to learners / providers/ funders? What's different about evaluating informal learning vis a vis formal learning? What are emerging practices for evaluation informal / self-paced adult learning? What are some challenges in the field? What are the opportunities in the field?

During this 3-week seminar, we will begin to address these and other questions as we informally learn about the role and practice of evaluation in informal learning.
