Can you suggest a program that would make for an engaging and challenging case for the 2016 Student Case Competition? We are seeking your ideas!
All we require is a brief description of the program and why you think it would be a good one to develop into a case. Once we select the cases, we will need further input from the organizations involved in the program to help us develop the case. For those who are not aware, the case competition is a bilingual annual event that sees teams of post-secondary students analyze an evaluation case. Round one happens in February 2016, and the finalist round will be at the CES Conference in St. John's. Details on the competition may be found on our website.
The program you suggest:
- Could be from any social, economic, cultural sector. Ideally it would be engaging to students. Past cases have included a pre-school literacy program for Aboriginal children, the Canadian Olympic Relay Race, and a body-image program for young women.
- Could be a government or community-based program.
- Would present some evaluation challenges – diverse clients, issues with reaching clients/collecting data, determining complex outcomes and assessing these, etc.
Please provide your suggestions by September 30, 2015 to Kathryn Radford at [email protected].We will follow up with all suggestions before making our selection.
