Evaluating a Successful Inter-Institutional Collaboration

Evaluating a Successful Inter-Institutional Collaboration


Sener Knowledge has served as an external evaluator for the WISE (Web-Based Information Science Education) Consortium's WISE and WISE+ projects since 2005. WISE is a collaboration of Library and Information Science programs that is increasing the quality, access, and diversity of online education opportunities in that field.

The WISE/WISE+ projects used a logic model to build their own strong internal evaluation process. Sener Knowledge has helped WISE(+) leadership build on this base and identify several unanticipated but important project accomplishments worthy of wider dissemination, including building a relatively size-independent, sustainable partnership model; creating one or more models which allow for relatively rapid, inexpensive, and high quality course development; and implementing collaboration/collabitition solutions between higher education institutions and professional organizations.
