Led by:

Louise Allen, PhD, BNutrDiet (Hons)

Monash University, Monash Centre for Professional Development and Monash Online Education

We know the outcomes of our educational interventions are important. However, we tend to focus on a narrow range of outcomes and forget that outcomes tell us only part of the story. This presentation will explore how we can and should expand our view of outcomes when evaluating our interventions and describe more comprehensive approaches to program evaluation.

At the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  • To describe the broad range of impacts/outcomes of educational interventions
  • To explain the limitations of outcome evaluation models – specifically the Kirkpatrick model
  • To explain the goal of program evaluation and summarize some key program evaluation models


Dr. Allen is a dietitian and a lecturer for Monash University Learning and Teaching in Australia. Her PhD, completed in 2020, explored the broad impacts of continuing professional development in the health professions. Her work considered outcomes beyond knowledge, skills, and attitudes such as the formation of networks and relationships and the benefits that learners, colleagues, patients and institutions gain from faculty participation in professional development. Dr. Allen was awarded a 2020 Fulbright Postdoctoral Fulbright Scholarship, which she is currently completing at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and her research aims to understand how physicians learn and if this changes over time, how physicians see themselves as learners, and what learning physicians find most meaningful and impactful.
