Evaluation Plan

Once you develop learning outcomes and objectives, organize content into learning experiences with specific activities, and support the sessions and activities with resources, your job as a nurse educator and curriculum developer is done, right? Wrong. Integral to program development is a plan to evaluate different aspects of the program to ensure that it is effective. This occurs at three levels: the learner level, the course/learning experience level, and the program level. As you consider the strategies that you will use in this master plan of evaluation, think about ways that you can be creative and innovative with your design.
