Evaluation Learning Lab: Linking Program Design and Evaluation
Centre for Social Innovation Spadina, 192 Spadina Ave, Toronto, ON M5T 2C7
A training workshop with Charlotte Young, PhD of Envision Synergy
November 20 from 10 AM – 3:30 PM at CSI-Spadina in downtown Toronto
From Ontario Trillium Foundation’s e-learning course on evaluation and Innoweave’s developmental evaluation module and support to the resources offered through Ontario Non-profit Network, “evaluation” is a common buzzword these days. Despite this emphasis, planning and carrying out evaluation of our efforts is often piecemeal or an afterthought. But where to start? How does it or how should it connect to our programs and initiatives and campaigns? In this session we’ll learn how to shift our thinking from evaluation as after-thought to evaluation as integral to the design of our initiatives. We’ll look at the outcomes you’re aiming to achieve and impacts you’re intending to make for a campaign, initiative or program you’re running and make sure to use an evaluation lens in crafting that information. To further enhance the learning and apply what you’ve learned, registration also includes an hour telephone coaching with the facilitator within in two weeks of completing the session. Workshop leader Charlotte Young is a seasoned collaboration and organizational specialist, who delivers participatory problem solving and visual thinking sessions that promote a sustainable, healthy, respectful world.
