Summary: The ongoing pandemic is creating a a tension between a greater need for continuing professional development and restrictions that make doing so a challenge. This has led many to shift educational strategies related to content, frequency, policy and delivery formats.  One of the most common delivery methods has been to leverage online synchronous and asynchronous strategies.

While there is an extensive literature supporting online teaching and learning, how best to conduct and/or fit in effective evaluation of these programs is less clear. In this session, we will examine existing program evaluation and outcome frameworks with the aim of applying these concepts to the evaluation of online delivery formats in CPD.
