Program Development, Revision & Evaluation
The Office of Academic Development is responsible for the development of new college programs and the revision of existing college programs.
Programs may be revised when specific recommendations are made as part of a formal evaluation process or in response to feedback generated through ongoing self-evaluation. Programs will also be revised when competencies are changed by the Ministry of Education.
The purpose of program evaluation is:
- To determine whether a program is being implemented effectively;
- To use the results generated by the evaluation to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the program;
- To make recommendations to build upon the strengths and address the weaknesses.
Program evaluations are carried out as per Dawson College’s Institutional Program Evaluation Policy.
