Equity-Focused and Culturally Responsive Evaluation Overview
Equity-Focused and Culturally Responsive Evaluation Course Description
In this three-module course, the focus will be on equity-focused and culturally responsive approaches to evaluation and research, and a combination of both theoretical and practical applications. The course will locate social inquiry as a key cultural product and provide a background and description for approaches that are considered culturally responsive. We will also discuss our own cultural location as researchers, as well as key dimensions of practice (e.g., context, relationships, validity, methodology, design, and reporting).

Module 1: Overview and Theoretical Foundations
This module begins with the justification and rational for the utilization of equity-focused and culturally responsive evaluation approaches. The instructor will overview the relationship between axiology, ontology, epistemology, methodology, and evaluation approaches and theories. Then, participations will work to understand the relationship between their own experiences, culture, education, and background and their practice. The extent to which all social inquiry products are steeped in culture will be discussed.
