Combining the expertise and resources of members from all six EU-UNAWE member countries creates a project which, as a whole, is so much more than the sum of its parts. Evaluation through detailed reflection is essential step in developing and improving resources, activities and teacher-training workshops. By each evaluating our own activities we provide a source of learning that can help progress and improve future projects across the entire EU-UNAWE network.
Resources have now been developed to help National Project Managers evaluate the impact of their EU-UNAWE activities on the intended target group of teachers or students. The materials explain how to collect and display evidence and how demonstrate the impact of an activity. The data collected using these resources will be collected in Spring 2013, to be followed by analysis during 2013. During their data collection, it is recommended that all National Project Managers visit at least one school or event to collect real data for analysis.
Members of each EU-UNAWE country have no doubt already completed considerable formative evaluation of their programmes during the development process, therefore the new report will be focussing on summative evaluating; stating the impacts of activities on the target group and helping to plan for future EU-UNAWE events. Ways of gathering summative information with the provided resources include:
These resources are specifically designed for the EU-UNAWE project and its member countries but are available for use by entire UNAWE network.
All evaluation material can be found in the Programme Evaluation Booklet.
