Effective Measures: Upcoming Evaluation Workshops

Effective Measures:  Upcoming Evaluation Workshops

Mark your calendar:  the 1st Thursday afternoon and 3rd Wednesday morning each month. More workshops will be scheduled for 2016-2017. 

To register for any of the workshops, email aprilc@spcottawa.on.ca.  Pre-registration is preferred but not necessary.

 
Whether you’re new to evaluation or just want to reinforce and re-energize your evaluation practice, these 3 workshops cover the basics. Each workshop is self-contained; none is a pre-requisite for the others.

 

Thursday, October 6                         1:00 – 3:00 p.m. at the Overbrook Community Centre, 33 Quill Street

Evaluation for everyone

This is an introduction to program evaluation – why do it, who it is for, steps in an evaluation, and integrating evaluation with other processes in your organization. Everyone uses some kind of evaluative thinking in their work; we will build on that.

Presented by Anna Lenk, Evaluation Consultant, Effective Measures

 

Wednesday, October 19       9:30 – 11:30 a.m. at the Overbrook Community Centre, 33 Quill Street

Results Chains: Connecting what you do with the change you want to see

This workshop will help you articulate the logic of how your activities lead to the changes you want to achieve. We will look at both logic models and theories of change, and how to choose which approach is best in a particular situation. 

Presented by Anna Lenk, Evaluation Consultant, Effective Measures

 

Thursday, November 3         1:00 – 3:00 p.m. at the Overbrook Community Centre, 33 Quill Street

Introduction to using data for evaluation

The systematic collection of information is a major element of evaluation. This workshop provides an overview of different types of quantitative and qualitative data used in evaluation, how to collect them, and then tell a strong and credible evaluation story.
