Learning interventions are typically evaluated based on metrics like attendance and completion. But how much does this actually tell you? How do you know if your interventions are effective? 

This week on The GoodPractice Podcast, Dr Will Thalheimer joins Ross G and Owen to discuss:

  • what 'evaluation' means
  • why it matters
  • common evaluation mistakes
  • alternatives to 'happy sheets'
