Adobe Program Evaluation Fellow
The American Cultures Center and Academic Innovation Studio are seeking a graduate student with expertise in survey study (or assessment of student learning, program evaluation) to contribute to the evaluation of the Adobe Fellows Program.
About the Adobe Fellows program:
The Adobe Fellows Program supports American Cultures instructors at Berkeley who wish to experiment with incorporating digital design tools into course assignments to deepen student learning and expand the visibility and "legibility" of the social justice work taking place within these courses. The successful candidate will join us as an evaluation fellow to help us understand how pedagogical support and training on Adobe digital tools impacted teaching, student learning, as well as experience of community partners.
January to December 2019 (start date: as soon as possible, no later than January 7). Possibility of a second appointment January - December 2020
Preliminary evaluation tasks (Tasks and responsibilities will be negotiated, prioritized, and assigned based upon your strengths and availability):
participate in planning meetings and discussions
clarify and map evaluation purpose, data source, and stakeholders
design and conduct pre-post student surveys in Spring 2019 and Fall 2019 to examine student gains and changes
produce an interim and final report on survey findings at the end of each semester
observe and analyze key program milestones (faculty project presentations, pedagogical discussions, student showcase events)
conduct brief interviews with select faculty and students to gather more detailed data
(If time allows) design and conduct surveys to capture faculty gains and changes and/or gather feedback from student support leads
$24.90/hour, paid as a stipend. Expected workload will be five hours per week on average but with heavier work hours at the beginning and end of each semester and at times when data collection is more active.
