Faculty Spotlight

"Hi there, I’m Gail Barrington. I live in Canada and I’m a program evaluator. I love what I do. I’ve had my own consulting firm for over 30 years and have conducted about 130 program evaluation studies, mainly in education, training, postsecondary education, and health. I have taught program evaluation for many years, mainly online, and believe that the online learning environment is a terrific way for students to learn because you are the center of your own classroom. Let’s get together and explore how program evaluation can support positive change in people’s lives."
