Evaluation Methodology and Results for the New Faculty Workshops 

written by Stephanie Viola Chasteen, Rajendra Chattergoon, Edward E. Prather, and Robert Hilborn

This paper describes the current evaluation of the Physics and Astronomy New Faculty Workshop (NFW) as a case-study in evaluation of professional development workshops. We describe a Theory of Action (ToA) for the workshop, and the evaluation methods and measures. The evaluation suggests that the ToA of the workshop is only partially fulfilled: workshop experiences are positive, and participants gain knowledge of active learning, but participants have room for additional growth in skill, self-efficacy and social support in their use of active learning. We discuss the implications of these results for the NFW program and evaluation.
