The CALP Professional Development Advisory Committee (PDAC) has convened a subcommittee dedicated to the evaluation of the CALP PD system, guided by the PD Logic Model.
The Evaluation sub-committee works with Advanced Education, training partners, and CALP staff to meet 3 ultimate outcomes:
1. CALP Staff acquire knowledge and skills they need from CALP PD
To measure our progress in this area, CALP PD providers and Advanced Education are collecting data about how you think PD is helping you in your role:
- Do you feel that you have access to the PD you need for your role in CALP?
- Is the training relevant to your work supporting adult foundational learners?
- How do you rate the quality of the delivery of the PD?
- Does the PD you access help you feel more confident in your work?
- Are you integrating the things you learn from PD into your professional practice?
2. CALP staff are actively engaged in professional communities
To measure how supporting and strengthening professional communities impact CALP staff and their work, we are collecting data from you about your participation in professional communities, about whether you integrate or implement ideas or practices you learn from others in the system, and how you share your own knowledge and expertise with others.
3. CALP staff are leaders and actively shape the CALP PD system
As CALP staff, you can provide your input on your PD needs through various ways. The PD providers funded through CALP (CLN, Alberta Routes, ECALA, and Calgary Learns) are members of the Evaluation Sub-committee, and work closely with Advanced Education to continuously improve PD for CALP grant recipients across the province.
If you would like to share your thoughts on the CALP PD system, feel free to reach out to your Grant Manager at Advanced Education, Regional Support Staff, Professional Development Specialist, Alberta Routes Advisor, or PDAC representative.
