Program planners, designers and implementers are often faced with the task of having to develop an evaluation plan or framework for the program/project that they are working on. This requires scoping the boundary of the evaluation and choosing the most appropriate evaluation questions and approach. Planning, negotiation, program logic modeling and evaluation criteria/indicator selection are integral components of this task. It is in these areas that this course is concentrated. Other areas covered include evaluation purpose, types, and questions; evaluation utilization; choosing outcomes for measurement; and key steps for planning and negotiating the evaluation.
This course is designed for those involved in developing evaluation plans/frameworks for public health or health service related programs or projects. Participants do not require any background training or knowledge of evaluation, however, experience or knowledge of health programs, policies or services would be an advantage.
Key concepts and approaches underpinning the course activities can be applied immediately to workplace programs. The third day is practical based, and involves working in groups on work-based programs – your own, or that of others.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions this short course will be delivered via Zoom. Tailored courses can be delivered for workplaces anywhere in Australia for groups of 10 or more. This could be a more cost-effective option for larger groups. Please contact us for more information.
