Abstract

This paper reports on a conference held at the Leyte Institute of Technology, Tacloban City, The Philippines. Entitled: Qualitative Approaches to Educational Evaluation, it was a cooperative venture between the College of Arts and Sciences at the Leyte Institute of Technology and the School of Education at Flinders University. A central purpose of the conference was to introduce participants to the possibilities that qualitative approaches to research offer educational evaluation. However, it provided more than an opportunity to simply explore the application of qualitative techniques to educational evaluation. The conference situated those techniques within a broad, Action Research, planning framework so that by the end of the conference, participants would be able to design, implement, and manage entire evaluation projects.

Educational evaluation, qualitative research, action research
