Implementation and Evaluation Report


Module Overview and Description:
The purpose of this instruction is to educate learners on the positive impact (benefits) of
recycling programs, inform them as to how to access area-specific recycling program
information, and how to prepare and dispose eligible recycling items for curbside pickup. After
careful consideration, instructional intervention was identified as the best solution to address
our initiative to encourage and increase the participation in recycling programs nationwide. In
efforts to reduce the environmental impact of manmade products and packaging, most of which
is not biodegradable, recycling has been identified as a strategy to combat the threat of North
America burying itself alive. This module will provide you information about the recycling
within the United States in hopes that you will become an active participant in recycling efforts,
both locally and nationally. Together we can make a big difference and contribute to an
environmentally cleaner future.

Description of Implementation:
The training module was successful during the pilot implementation. The implementation
was designed for adult learners. The highlights included the participants reactions to the ease of
navigation and creation of the course. Each major step was broken down, step-by-step to ensure
learner mastery. They expressed excitement that they had constructed their own recycling plan
and the discussion within the course had a natural progression to incorporate the other methods
to communicate online. Data and feedback from this initial stage of implementation will be used
to define the expansion of the course.

Analysis of Evaluation Data

Data collected after the implementation was used for comparison to the presurvey data. This data that was collected, pre and post, was to determine whether the program is
achieving expected outcomes by measuring effectiveness of learner learning and attitudes and
reactions to the program (Morrison, 2013). For evaluations to be effective, it is important that
the training objectives are carefully thought and aligned with the curriculum. After evaluating
comparing the pre and post data this tutorial was a success. The defined goals in this tutorial
were met and evidenced by the measure of improvement by the comparison of improvement that
the learner declared before and after the tutorial. After implementation the instructor was able to
verbally connect with each of the participants to gain some verbal feedback. All the feedback
was positive and appreciative. The learners stated that the tutorial was easy to follow and gave
various ways for learning.

The learner assessment was analyzed in a few different ways throughout the process.
Before the live module, the learners were instructed to complete a several tasks on the preinstructional survey. The participants completed a pre-instructional survey that mirrored the
post-course survey and the comparison showed a notable increase in attaining the first goal of
broadening the understanding of the benefit of recycling and curbside pickup.

Proposed Revisions and Key Points

A majority of the learners were familiar with recycling and curbside pickup.

Monitoring recycling activities and provided direct feedback to leaner on their recycling
habits at both the beginning and end of the course.

The Learners felt comfortable with the course material the 3 R's of Waste Management:
Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle.

Provide links and resources for participants within their communities.

The learners are able to help reduce the volume of waste dumped within their area and to
conserve our natural resources.

The learners are able to determine whether or not an item is a manmade products and
packaging, most of which is not biodegradable eligible for recycling.

The learners were trained on how to prepare and dispose of eligible recycling items for
curbside pickup and will have the opportunity to demonstrate practical application of
their new knowledge by identifying whether an item is recyclable or non-recyclable.
