Dr. Evergreen is best known for bringing a research-based approach to helping evaluators better communicate their work through more effective graphs, slides, and reports. She will offer her course, Presenting Data Effectively: Practical Methods for Improving Evaluation Communication, during the January 2015 program. In this two-day computer lab course, participants will learn the best practices in graphic design based on visual processing theory; how to apply graphic design’s best practices and visual processing theory to enhance evaluation communications; and how to create high impact data visualizations in Excel.
A discussion on new directions in the field of survey research including new takes on mixed-mode surveys; use of web surveys on smart phones; and research on eye tracking as it relates to the use of multiple modes and multiple devices (i.e., computers, smartphones, and tablets for web surveys).
The Evaluators’ Institute is nearing the completion of four year collaboration with World Education Inc. of the USAID funded Monitoring and Evaluation Partnership (MEP) Program in Jordan. Together TEI and World Education provided training and technical assistance to Jordan’s National Center for Human Resource Development (NCHRD) to augment and increase their technical capacity and expertise in conducting monitoring and evaluation (M&E) studies for the Ministry of Education to examine the outcomes associated with Jordan’s Educational Reform for the Knowledge Economy (phase II – ERfKE II). Four evaluators from NCHRD, having completed the requirements for TEI’s Certificate Program will be awarded the Master Evaluator Certificate in August of this year.
In addition to the MEP Program, TEI has conducted evaluation training for the Jordan Education Initiative, Ministry of Education, and the Queen Rania Teacher Academy – contributing substantively to building and strengthening evaluation capacity in Jordan.
