How to Evaluate the Impact of Faculty Development Programs

Featured Higher Education Presenter: Sue Hines, Ed.D.

To maintain and upgrade the skills of your faculty members, you invest a lot of time and money in faculty development programs. Unfortunately, it can be hard to know whether these efforts are really paying off.

It’s common for faculty developers and administrators to focus on the “inputs” of programming, rather than on the “output” or results that are achieved.

This has to change.

Like every other area of academia, faculty development programming also needs to be accountable for its outcomes. Best practices are finally emerging to assist with this important undertaking.

In How to Evaluate the Impact of Faculty Development Programs, Dr. Sue Hines will offer practical, procedural guidance on how to accurately measure the effectiveness of your existing faculty development programming.

In this audio online seminar, you will learn:

  • The distinction between evaluation, assessment, and review
  • The unique characteristics of faculty development programming
  • The challenges of measuring program effectiveness
  • Examples of current evaluation practices
  • How to develop a plan to evaluate outcomes based on your goals
  • Ways to measure the success of your faculty development efforts based on best practices
  • How to develop a framework for customized program evaluation

This session includes a representative case study to demonstrate how to apply an evaluation framework to a specific scenario.
