A Discussion of Culturally Responsive Approaches to Evaluation

We live in a dynamic cultural and political time, as the social, economic and political effects of neoliberal policies and globalization, ethnic and religious conflict, and environmental devastation continue to mount. Our epoch can be defined by transmigration of people and ideas, a shifting of borders and walls, a time where maps of our cultural, political and geographic landscape are being etched and redefined on an almost daily basis. As evaluators who work in applied social science in communities, schools and organizations across the globe, we cannot avoid the turbulent and unstable reality of this era. Implicit in our work as evaluators are numerous cultural and methodological assumptions concerning the purpose of evaluation, the role of evaluators, the values and principles of practice, the nature and limitations of the inquiry process and ongoing disputes regarding evidentiary standards. In this talk, Dr. Chouinard discusses her research on culturally responsive approaches to evaluation, and what it means to design and conduct an evaluation within this dynamic, unstable and shifting global context. The enduring question that weaves its way throughout her research is: What new methodological spaces can we create to enable a collective and ongoing pursuit of a more just and humane world for all?

This workshop is led by Jill Anne Chouinard, PhD, Assistant Professor, Educational Research Methodology. It is part of the UNCG Community Engagement Speaker Series.

The Finances of Purchasing Your Own Home

The recent housing collapse has changed the home buying process significantly. Where once it was easy
to attain credit, it has become more difficult again and a home’s value as an investment is more uncertain.
Banks have gone back to a more traditional lending approach as a result of the collapse and now having
good credit and a down payment is essential. Lenders are also focused on offering more traditional
mortgage products such as 30- and 15-year mortgages versus the exotic ARMs offered a few years ago.
Buying a home is still an American dream and it is important to understand the process, parties involved
and what is in your financial best interests when making this investment.

At the end of this workshop you will be able to:
• Describe the process and players in purchasing a home
• Describe how credit impacts buying a home
• Identify the costs associated with homeownership
• Calculate the maximum amount you can pay for your home and what you can really afford
• Describe tax issues surrounding home ownership
• Compare various financing options and terms

Target Audience: Any new potential homeowners who are seeking to learn more about navigating the home purchase process

Secondary Traumatic Stress Training

Vicarious trauma, secondary traumatic stress or compassion fatigue, trauma exposure response, and burnout are “all forms of stress that may affect those working in “helping” professions because their work involves direct exposure to other’s trauma.” (Phoenix, 2014)  Often, vicarious trauma refers to a changing in someone’s worldview and secondary traumatic stress refers to the emotional duress an individual may experience as the result of working with someone who has experienced violence. These changes can result in a shift in ideals and have a negative effect on work with students, supervisors, or even the institution at large.  In order for campus staff to continue to provide trauma-informed, timely, and appropriate care for students, employees must have the opportunity to find support and practice their own self-care.

This interactive presentation will highlight the importance of recognizing and responding to personal experiences with vicarious trauma as well as implementing approaches for prevention. The facilitators will identify obstacles to a healthy self-care plan as well as resources for staff to use including methods of self-care and ideas for vicarious trauma prevention.

Conversational Presenting

Conversational Presenting is useful in public speaking. More specifically, it is excellent for communicating qualitative research, as well as general information, on various topics during meetings or conferences, because it allows for the presenter to be more fluent. Researchers agree that conversational presenting keeps audiences engaged - it is usually easier to listen to someone who is speaking in a conversational manner.

In "Conversational Presenting 101," participants will learn different strategies to enhance their personal presenting styles for increased engagement and participant satisfaction.

Target Audience: Employees looking to converse comfortably in front of an audience.

Practicing Assertiveness

What does it mean to be assertive? Assertiveness is a core communication skill that allows us to advocate
for our wants and needs in a way that respects the rights of others, as well as ourselves. Some people
are naturally assertive; and for others, it requires practice. This training is here to help. During this session,
we will look at what it means to be assertive and what situations benefit from it the most. It also covers
strategies for understanding your emotions, wants, and needs so you can clearly define what you need
from others. 

At the end of this workshop, you will be able to:
• Differentiate between passive, aggressive, passive-aggressive, and assertive forms of communication
• Know the benefits and disadvantages of various forms of communication
• Develop healthier relationships with the people around you, including friends, family members, significant
other and co-workers
• Practice practical methods of asserting yourself daily
• Gain confidence in advocating for your needs and desires

By the end of this training, you will be better able to advocate for yourself using assertive
communication techniques.

Target Audience: This workshop is for anyone who would like to develop their assertiveness skills.
