Demystifying Program Evaluation
Program evaluation helps social workers demonstrate the effectiveness of their programs and interventions, and is essential to practitioners in many different human service sectors. Measuring outcomes is an important part of program evaluation: Outcome measures can help staff and managers improve program performance and, in so doing, secure the buy-in and support of boards, funders, and clients. The goal of this workshop is to help practitioners demystify and "befriend" program evaluation. Through this interactive seminar, participants become familiar with the basics of program evaluations, learning how to utilize outcomes and measurements for the purpose of evaluation, planning, and quality improvement. Participants have the opportunity to apply the skills to their own programs by developing program outcomes for future use.
