ARIS Advanced Broader Impacts Webinars

  • Zoom


June 16, 2021 ; 2-4  PM  CT - Evaluating Broader Impacts Activities

All NSF proposals must not only have a broader impacts component, but a well-articulated plan for evaluating the broader impacts activities that are being proposed.  This can present a challenge for investigators who are not trained in program evaluation.  This workshop will provide a brief introduction to the basics of program evaluation and connect participants with some tools and resources to help them get started.  It will also explore the question of self-evaluation vs. “outsourcing” by working with an external evaluator.


* The following are eligible for ARIS memberships: K-12 Teachers and Students, Undergrads, Graduate Students, Postdocs, anyone from a Minority Serving Institution (MSI), which would include HBCUs, HSIs and TCUs (Historically Black Colleges/Universities, Hispanic Serving Institutions, Tribal Colleges/Universities), anyone from a 2-year/Community College or Technical/Vocational School
