Utilizing Process Improvement Guidelines to Evaluate the Impact of Reactive Online Programming and to Guide the Proactive Development of Future Online Initiatives
Abstract: Teachers, administrators, and technology support personnel across the planet had to rush into providing more of their learning and teaching content and experiences online during the Covid sequestration. Often, these online learning activities were done reactively, with little notice being given to the learners and instructors. In this session, we will discuss the Process Improvement Guidelines (PIG) to help support reflective evaluations into the impact the learning and teaching activities had on the students, educators, parents, and programs. The PIG provides a proactive support for educators as they attempt to evaluate the outcomes of their recent reactive online interventions, and to evaluate the impact that their efforts have had through collegial reflective practice, knowledge based management strategies, and a structure for the investigations into what has happened, why it occurred, and where the organization needs to go to meet future needs.
