Program Evaluation Workshops Registration Open
SaskCulture, in partnership with Two Bridges Consulting, is hosting a two-part program evaluation workshop digitally for interested organizations and individuals. There is no fee to attend the workshops, but registration is required. Registration is to attend both parts of the offered workshops.
Part 1 - Thursday, October 22, 2020 - 10:00am - 12:00pm CST
Part 2 - Thursday, October 29, 2020 - 10:00am - 12:00pm CST
In the two sessions, you will learn the basics of program evaluation. This will include the differences (and similarities) between program evaluation and research, the history of program evaluation, the theoretical backings evaluators operate from, and the difference program evaluation can make for an organization. We will also cover the basics of how to create a logic model, theory of change, and how to write indicators. These sessions will include hands-on creation of evaluation materials, so be sure to bring an example of a program you'd like to evaluate.
