Want to get in tune with your program participants? Evaluation is a systematic way to know what’s going on inside their heads. When using evaluation effectively, you can interpret and compare the audience’s experiences to objectively understand programming quality. Learn the tools of the trade through this overview of program evaluation, including needs assessment, surveys, questionnaires, focus groups, observations and interviews.

As a hybrid class, videos, articles and additional content will be provided through an online portal. Participants are required to watch the videos and complete readings prior to the class meeting. During the class session, group discussions and activities will guide you through the development of a draft survey.

Registration is required.
