Welcome to the Network

The learning evaluation network is an international community of practice, and a shared learning network, for anyone who aims to evaluate the impact of learning and development in organisations.

The network includes:

  • A shared global domain of knowledge about learning evaluation
  • An online community with other evaluators of learning worldwide
  • Collaboration to inform good practice in learning evaluation

The network offers information, advice, resources, contacts, communication among members, sharing of documents and experience, opportunities for benchmarking, exchanges, business transactions, and more.
