Next DLNET Chat: Evaluation

Posted on by

Join us on Friday 7th May, 1-2pm, to talk about evaluating digital learning using the hashtag #DLNETChat

This month’s DLNET chat is all about evaluation. The last year has seen a shift in the way the culture and heritage sector engage and interact with their audience, moving almost exclusively to online and digital content in an effort to keep collections and services accessible and available. A lot of experimentation was involved, new skills learned and trialled by fire to see what worked and what did not work. Now things are slightly calmer, it’s time to think about the best way to evaluate your digital learning offer during the last year.

Evaluation is not a new concept, but with this move to predominantly online content, ensuring you are reaching and being well received by the right audiences is key. Any evaluation is good evaluation. It can be as simple as taking the time after a session to think about what worked and what you would do better next time, or as in depth as hiring a 3rd party to assess data you have collected and translate that into successes and next steps.

With that in mind, we want to hear from you! 

  • What are your experiences of evaluating digital learning in the last year?
  • Have you come up with any unique ways of evaluating a project or content?
  • Have you tried evaluating on the fly? How did it go?
  • What are your views on incentivising your evaluation (if the budget allows) – do you find it helps?
  • What are your favourite tools for evaluation?
  • How you have used your evaluation data to adapt and improve your content?
  • Do you keep both quantitative and qualitative data? Do you prefer one or the other or is a joint approach preferable? 

Keep your eyes peeled for next Wednesday’s DLNET twitter poll, along with emails from the JISCMAIL lists and join in the chat!
