AIM / CloudSat / GLOBE 2007 Educator Workshop

Pre-Workshop To Do List

1. Pre Evaluation Instructions (Please complete the pre-eval before you arrive) The following email was sent to you previously by PERG (Sabra Lee…If you have questions contact Sabra.

Dear Teachers: In order for our external evaluators to help us refine and revise our summer workshop to better meet the needs of teachers, we ask you to fill out a quick on-line survey both before and after the institute. The purpose of this survey is to collect information about your experiences and interests, as well as your expectations for the workshop. The Program Evaluation and Research Group (PERG) at Lesley University was hired by AIM as external evaluators to help them look at the effectiveness of the workshops, as well as ways in which to improve them. This is a program evaluation and not an evaluation of any individuals. Our evaluator, Sabra Lee of PERG, assures you that your survey will remain confidential; only she will have the password to access it on line. This first pre-workshop survey will take about 10 minutes to complete. Using a computer with Internet access, click on the link provided below: (the link was sent to you in an email to provide confidentiality). Please complete the survey as soon as possible.
You will meet Sabra at the workshop when she is present for 2 days of
observations: please feel free to talk with her at that time. Those
conversations will also be confidential.
Thank you,
Barbara Maggi
Dianne Robinson
Sabra Lee (evaluator)
