Evaluation of Community-Based Projects

Completing a community project is a valuable activity in itself, but how do you know what impact you’ve had? How do you tell others about the change you can see in your community? How can you learn and grow from the process so that you can do even better next time? In this course, you will learn how to evaluate your project and what you have learned. You will also learn how to plan your next steps and wrap up the process. 

What will I learn?

You will explore these topics:

  • Story-stick project: evaluation as telling the story
  • Community project evaluation
  • Evaluating what you have learned
  • Reflecting on your experiences in the program

How will I learn?

  • Online instruction
  • Workshops
  • Case studies
  • Projects
  • Weekly reading and/or assignments
  • Group presentations

Who should take this course?

This course is for cohorts in rural Aboriginal communities who are interested in strengthening the skills they need to build leadership and capacities in their communities.

How will I be evaluated?

Evaluation is based on your active participation, attendance, and your personal learning journal, which you will work on throughout the certificate program. You will receive regular feedback from your instructor and community-based mentors.  At four points in the certificate program, both you and your instructor will complete a simple questionnaire about your learning process, participation, and contributions to the program.
