In Their Own Words: Student Key Learning Experiences in an Introductory Evaluation Course
Student reflections on their key learning experiences in evaluation courses can be useful data for educators seeking to understand which aspects of their teaching practice are most impactful. This practice note describes how we analyze students’ reflections on their key learning experiences using 1) grounded theory, 2) Fink’s taxonomy of significant learning (2013), and 3) the American Evaluation Association’s Competencies framework (2018), and how we use the frameworks and data to understand our teaching of evaluation practice.
