A key component of the evaluation plan is to support evaluation capacity with project partners seeking to develop monitoring and evaluation skills in order to track language revitalization progress. 


The evaluation plan will use a mixed method case study approach that combines quantitative and qualitative data collection and analysis methods. Given that each of the partnering Nations and/or communities have different goals, objectives, timelines, and skill sets, the mixed method case study approach provides a way to establish generalizable themes arising from each particular case context. 

This approach also allows flexibility in examining each of the individual project initiatives within its relevant context in order to provide the most comprehensive perspective on the project as a whole. 


An upcoming evaluation capacity building opportunity is being offered this spring through the School of Public Health: UEval: Evaluation in the Community Context. Open to learners from across all disciplines, UEval is designed to accommodate beginners with no prior evaluation experience and those with advanced evaluation knowledge. It is an experiential one-week course (May 30 – June 3, 2022) where learners will:

– Interactively explore evaluation theory with community stakeholders

– Develop evaluative responses to community-informed issues

Funding for full course costs is available for Indigenous learners on a first come first serve basis.
