Eval18: Sharing Voices, Sharing Truths: Evaluation Capacity Building through a Living History Service Learning Partnership 

12-30-2018 16:38

For over six years, the Vermilionville Education Enrichment Partnership (VEEP) has existed as an academic service learning collaboration between Vermilionville, a living history museum and folklife park, the University of Louisiana at Lafayette (UL Lafayette), and the Lafayette Parish School System (LPSS). Through VEEP, and under the mentorship of UL Lafayette faculty and Vermilionville staff, pre-service elementary and secondary social studies and English/language arts teachers prepare and implement interdisciplinary lessons—anchored in Acadian, Native American, and Creole cultures—with LPSS students. Although some evaluation processes have been in place for this program through the collection of qualitative and quantitative data, a more formal evaluation system has become necessary due to increasing participation and interest in the program. This presentation will describe the evaluation capacity building frameworks that are currently being developed with Vermilionville and program stakeholders in order to continue to support the partnership as it flourishes.
