Evaluation of Monash University’s “Course in Recognising and Responding to Sexual Violence”
This evaluation will focus on:
- self-reported achievement of learning outcomes, including recognising various forms, drivers and compounding factors of sexual violence; understanding of community impacts of sexual violence; knowledge of barriers to disclosure; and skills in providing culturally appropriate and trauma-informed support
- participants’ and trainers’ views on the training delivery modes
- impact of the training on practice.
ANROWS is leading this evaluation in partnership with the Sax Institute. Evaluators will use a participatory, mixed-methods approach. Stakeholders will provide input into the development of the evaluation plan and data collection instruments, as well as during the data analysis and reporting phases. Stakeholders include Monash University, VET course deliverers (RMIT), and women with lived experience of sexual violence.
The main data sources are:
- participant feedback forms for each course unit
- learning outcomes assessment data collected by VET training providers
- interviews with participants and trainers
- workshop observation
- a participant impact survey conducted 8 to 12 weeks after course completion.
