Welcome to eeLEARN a series of online learning modules covering the basics of environmental education. This module is an introduction to research and evaluation for environmental educators and others working in education. Through case studies and a step-by-step illustration of the evaluation process, we will explore how evaluation can improve your EE programs. We will also look at how research can inform practice and where you can go for research summaries and syntheses. This module ends with opportunities for you to get more involved in the research and evaluation community. So–let’s dive in! To start, we asked some EE all stars to tell us about the differences between research and evaluation.
