The Alliances for Graduate Education and the Professoriate (AGEP) Evaluation Capacity Building Conference (ECBC) project is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and led by Education Development Center (EDC). The primary goal of this project is to increase the capacity of evaluators of AGEP-funded Alliances to produce high quality, culturally responsive, contextually relevant and methodologically appropriate evaluations of AGEP Alliances. The ECBC aims to:
- Provide AGEP evaluators, PIs, and co-PIs with information on evaluation theory and practice innovations, advances and resources
- Foster connections and collaborations among AGEP evaluators and PIs
- Spark new ideas and innovations through dialogue across experiences and expertise
While originally designed to offer in-person conferences, the AGEP ECBC is currently facilitating virtual events focused on important issues facing AGEP evaluators.
