    Canadian Institutions deliver a range of programming to promote student mental health. but do not always have the resources to develop evaluation methods to determine their effectiveness.  The Best Practices Network in Canadian Higher Ed is committed to sharing emerging and best practices and results across Canadian post-secondary institutions.  For this two-hour workshop, participants will learn about Algonquin College’s Umbrella Project and the University of Calgary’s Case Management Services and their challenges in engaging in evaluation/assessment.  Facilitated by the Best Practice Network, participants and project leads will engage in the development process of evaluation strategies for these projects.
