Evaluation and Educational Research
At CIRES E&O, we have an in-house evaluation team that works with CIRES scientists and collaborates with partners from other organizations.
Our educational researchers focus on understanding learning related to the environmental sciences.
Value Statement: At CIRES E&O, evaluation and educational research respect persons, communities, cultures, and identities. We use a variety of methods, acknowledging there are multiple ways to conduct research or evaluation. Collaborating, listening, and reflecting are important parts of building relationships, thoughtfully choosing methods, understanding data, and interpreting findings. We see educational research and evaluation as part of the process of learning how STEM education and outreach can best support learners, educators, and scientists.
