The unit addresses two dimensions of contemporary evaluations: evaluation for understanding and improvement, and evaluation for monitoring outcomes and accountability. The unit considers the range of evaluation approaches available to educators, trainers, human resource managers and senior administrators with an emphasis on qualitative approaches. Students are introduced to five general forms of evaluation practice for exploration, and are encouraged to apply their developing understanding of these forms of evaluation to their own professional contexts. Students can identify a unit of 'evaluative analysis' which may focus on systems, organisations, staff groups participating in strategic professional development, and/or education and training programs.
