Lecture Overview

"So we went down the hall, down another hall, into a disused ward, and then at the back of the ward, in an office, in the bottom of the filing cabinets, we found the evaluations". Sound familiar? But just what does this say about the value and importance we place on evaluations? Evaluations are critical components of your education, and evaluating well can lead to a change in learner behaviour. In this engaging and lively presentation from Cynthea Wellings, learn how you can start making the most of your evaluations.
