The reason why I mention this specifically is that I will be teaching some of you again next summer in EDET 850: Program Evaluation. This course provides a methodological framework for designing a program evaluation that will help you answer questions about the effects of your interventions on al stakeholders (foremost, your target population of learners). Many methods used in programs are identical to the general research methods you will learn more about in your quantitative and qualitative research courses. In fact, the only difference between program evaluation and research is the purpose of the study. Evaluations help you determine whether or not your interventions are effective AND/OR whether or not they should be continued. This is, no doubt, a very important part of the professional practice of educational leaders.
I also want to communicate that you are free to use the intervention you described for Project #2 in your Project #3 if you do plan to use it as part of your dissertation study.
