Evaluation Outcomes and Objectives – Creating a Solid Base for Your Program Evaluation Plan
Wednesday, June 26 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pmNo cost to participate
Do you ever feel like program evaluation is just a reporting hoop to jump through? Is creating objectives and outcomes an afterthought? When writing an evaluation plan do you ever feel like you are making stuff up or just putting in what you think the funders want to hear? If you answered yes to any (or all!) of these questions, come for a fresh look at the power of program evaluation to get you information that you can use to reflect on your art, connect with your communities, and help explain your work to funders.There will be an overview of evaluation methods and strategies, followed by time to develop your own program objectives and outcomes, the core elements that form the base of a solid evaluation plan.
