Virtual Training: Introduction to Evaluation

Online - 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

This workshop will provide an overview of what evaluation is and what it can do for you and your programs. The focus will be on building a strong evaluation foundation to gather and, most importantly, use information to improve programming efforts. Many of the examples will focus on community-based programs and this training is appropriate for community-based organizations as well as researchers implementing programmatic interventions in community settings. Many learnings can be applied to internal, organizational programming efforts as well. Topics will include the difference between evaluation and research, how evaluation can benefit your program, methods for collecting and using evaluation data, and involving stakeholders in evaluation activities. This training is co-hosted by Northwestern's Alliance for Research in Chicagoland Communities (ARCC) and Buehler Center for Health Policy and Economics.  This session is part of an evaluation training series. Workshops will be offered monthly. Zoom registration will be shared soon. This training will be presented by Sarah Welch, Director of Evaluation Research in Northwestern's Buehler Center for Health Policy and Economics.
