Learning Evaluation by Design

Online • Live • 3 weeks


Go beyond the post-event survey to measurable indicators of learning that will help you discover the impact your event has on changing the lives of your learners.

At GLP, we believe that a strong learning design “begins with the end in mind.” We make a clear distinction between feedback and evaluation. We think of evaluation in three stages: learning, transfer, and impact. This is a deceivingly simple model that, when unpacked, yields great insight into how to design learning opportunities for the greatest potential impact.


What will you learn?

This is an engaging and highly personalized course that balances group learning with solo learning. The course will sharpen your vision for change, and set you up to thoughtfully document that change. By the end of the course, you will have:

  • affirmed and fortified ways you already do learning-centered evaluation
  • generated creative possibilities to gather and use learners’ feedback
  • crafted learning objectives that are more measurable indicators of learning
  • designed a plan to evaluate learning transfer for an upcoming event
  • used the principles of inclusion and accountability to strengthen an evaluation plan
  • maximized potential impact by focusing on learners applying what they have learned


Course components

  • 3 x 4-hr virtual workshops (one per week for three weeks)
  • Independent work on your Learning Evaluation Plan
  • Nuggets – 1 pre-course, 3 per week between sessions, and learning transfer nuggets after the last workshop


What else do you need to know?

  • There is no pre-requisite for this course (previous training with GLP is helpful but not necessary)
  • The dialogue in this course will be focused on evaluation of a learning design or event, but does not delve into full program evaluation models.
