Impact Assessment of Science Education Initiatives: What Strategies Have Worked, and Which Will Support Continued Improvements of Science Education at all Levels?
In the last decade at UBC, there have been a considerable number of small and large-scale teaching and learning innovations within the Faculty of Science, each having had their impacts assessed with a variety of techniques. How then can we leverage these and other strategies to inform a more cohesive approach to science education reform at all levels, from small, local innovations to course-specific, program-wide or department and faculty-level initiatives? In this Supper Series gathering, we will share and reflect upon the challenges, benefits, and opportunities of measuring the impact of our educational reform efforts within and beyond UBC. As a group, we will consider how the outcomes of our projects can support continued improvements in our individual as well as collaborative science education initiatives.
