Evaluation of an Online Men's Behaviour Change Program
Commissioned by: Violence Free Families
Research team: Anthea Rutter, Timoci O'Connor
Summary: The Centre for Program Evaluation (CPE) is undertaking an evaluation of an Online Men’s Behaviour Change Program (OMBCP) over a one year period. This OMBCP trial represents another strand in the attempt to prevent family violence. The key objective is to trial a men’s behaviour change program through a web-based medium. The program is intended for those men who find it difficult to attend a face-to-face session for a number of reasons (e.g., their geographical location or their line of work which may entail shift work).

Summary: In collaboration with the Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership (AITSL), the Centre for Program Evaluation is currently conducting a three-year nationwide evaluation of the implementation of the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers. The focus of this Evaluation is not to re-evaluate the content of the Standards, but to assess the usefulness, effectiveness and impact of their implementation.
