If you need to hone your evaluation skills in the company of other, skilled evaluators then TEI is the place to go.Patrick, Senior Evaluator in Healthcare

Every class I’ve taken has added something to my skillset, either using that knowledge at a later point in time or during an ongoing evaluation. It’s things like how to select site visits, analyze data, present data. I’ve been able to discuss actual challenges either with the instructor or in the breakout groups.Kim, Consultant in Federal Government

Here’s what TEI participants have said!

I am already senior management, but thanks to TEI, I’ve become a more sophisticated, capable program executive. I’m more focused on producing great outcomes, versus merely coping with day-to-day activities. I can speak with increasing confidence and authority on what types of measures are important to our program and its stakeholders, and explain why other seemingly important measures are in fact just curious distractions. After having participated in 2 or 3 years’ of TEI courses, I enrolled in the Pitt Ed.D. program, where I found myself a step or two ahead of my peers in discussions about evaluation and applied social research. Class readings and discussions would cover the work of leading evaluation scholars and I’d smile and say, “I’ve personally studied with those experts through TEI.” – Curt, Director at a Nonprofit Organization

I was impressed not only with the depth and breadth of the content provided in the TEI courses I took, but also and I think, more importantly, I learned a lot of real-life examples, tips, DOs and DON’Ts in conducting real-world evaluation from the lecturers and resource persons who have many years of evaluation experience behind their belts.Jun, PhD Student in Higher Education
