The BUSLeague consortium has conducted upskilling interventions or trainings to address the stimulated demand for a skilled workforce in the energy transition. To design interventions for these activities and evaluate their effectiveness, it is important to identify what learning outcomes want to be addressed and what learning outcomes have been achieved.

Aside from their positive impact on self-regulated professional learning in terms of the informed selection of trainings and design of suitable trainings, only the focus on learning outcomes allows developing evaluations for acquired knowledge and skills, respecting the trade-off between evaluation benefits and efforts, and sharing resulting evaluation practices.

In the analysis of effectiveness and timeliness from the educational perspective, not only the objective learning outcomes and triggers are considered, but also the experienced outcomes: how were participants motivated, did they experience the intervention help them to progress and how did they integrate what was learned in their current practice?

However, the construction and building domain is missing an easy to use step-by-step guidance that considers evaluation goals as well as context and that makes accessible evaluation of effectiveness as well as timeliness from the educational perspective.

Therefore, in collaboration with the BUS League consortium, we designed the EVALUATION123 to guide the evaluation of use and outcomes of upskilling interventions. It consists of an evaluation framework suitable for a broad variety of interventions and a toolset to support its self-directed application. Aside from informing evaluation and respective guidance, the EVALUATION123 raises awareness about benefit and use of learning analytics and paths.
