TELI2 Evaluation

As part of the projects quality assurance an external evaluator worked with the project team to complete an evaluation of the project and consider its impacts.  The final report from this evaluation is provided and overall the outcomes have been significant and positive.

TELI2 Evaluation Final

This evaluation has focused on the perceptions of participants on the programme and TELi2 approach. It can be confidently stated that participants are very positive overall. Whether using qualitative or quantitative measures, participants expressed satisfaction with the course. Overall, the factors which gave rise to satisfaction were –

  • The opportunity to share experiences with others
  • The mix of theory and practice
  • The quality of the lecturers
  • The opportunity to mix with others from different countries and different levels of experience
  • The opportunity to gain a recognised qualification
  • The opportunity to learn about examples of best practice
  • The opportunity to reflect on the fundamentals of LEADER and how it can be applied in participants’ own LAGs
  • The opportunity to be part of a network which will give capacity for shared projects in the future
  • Various skill development and personal development opportunities experienced by participants

While the reaction was positive overall, however, a number of areas can be identified for improvement in future iterations –

  • Enhancement of the learning portal and the Moodle OLE
  • Enhancement of the lectures to make them somewhat more interactive
  • Provision of more opportunity for group work and group interaction
  • Some group pre-development work to maximise the learning during the workshops
  • Enhancement of the online material, provision of better access to relevant literature and more clarity regarding assignments
  • Smoother linkage between field-trip examples and the taught element of the programme with which they are associated
  • Recognition of the challenge for those whose main language is not English
  • Tailoring of the programme for individual countries

These are, however, counsels to perfection and it is reasonable to conclude that based on the evaluation of the participants the programme achieved all of the principal objectives of the project.
