Beyond Satisfaction: Toward an Outcomes-Based, Procedural Model of Faculty Development Program Evaluation
Journal of Faculty Development Volume 25, Number 3, ISSN 0736-7627
In response to the well-documented need for rigorous evaluations of faculty development programs and increasing demands for institutional accountability, University of Minnesota's Office of Information Technology (OIT) researchers have developed an approach to program evaluation that assesses individual level changes to participants' attitudes, values, and behaviors on defined programmatic outcomes. Following an overview of the program in which the new approach was piloted, we detail the process used to develop the instrument, the data collection methods, and the analysis of the results. Additionally, results of reliability tests are presented with suggestions for how the instrument may be improved in future iterations. (Contains 5 tables and 3 footnotes.)
