Foundations of Evaluation and Assessment in Library Settings: Part II – This Is How We Do It…
Part II of the Foundations of Evaluation and Assessment in Library Settings workshops will focus on what these concepts looks like in practice. Building on real-world examples, this session will address a variety of approaches used to conduct evaluations and assessments, with a focus on participatory approaches designed to be more inclusive and democratic.

Participants will learn to:
• Compare data collection and analysis techniques to aid in the selection of appropriate methods that align with evaluation and assessment projects
• Recognize the importance of participatory approaches to evaluation and assessment, particularly for the integration of inclusive practices
• Identify potential opportunities for implementing results of completed evaluation and assessment projects
