Evaluating Your Program - Strengthening Your Organization Workshops

The best program plan includes a plan for evaluating the success of your program.  Often, evaluation is a last minute thought as you head into an event – how can I get feedback from the group.  Thoughtful evaluation begins well before the idea of the program or event, as your programming can be built right into your program or organization logic model, garnering efficient, effective and meaningful data.  This highly interactive session will share information about types of evaluation, feedback formats, and connecting a long-term evaluation plan to long-term program planning. Learn the difference between outcomes and impacts, and strategies to measure both.  Participants will complete a draft evaluation plan for one of their own projects.   . Audience: Adults. Cost: $ 30.
