Roundtable

Using Case Study Methodology to Evaluate Twice-Exceptional Professional Development Activities

Saturday, November 11
1:15 PM - 2:15 PM
Location: Exhibit Hall Roundtable 5

How do you evaluate professional development activities? How do you develop an evaluation plan? The nature of an evaluation is to improve rather than to prove. With that understanding in mind, what research endeavors can help bring about suggestions for improvement? In this session, the presenter explains the rationale and design of using case study methodology to evaluate a two-year professional development program that helped teachers and specialized service professionals learn more about serving twice-exceptional students. Data collection and analysis strategies are also shared. This session is expected to be interactive, so be prepared and come with questions!
