Goshen College announced its newest professional development workshop series, Evaluating Social Service Programs, aimed to help professionals in social service fields continue to grow and develop skills in order to advance their careers.
This series of workshops is designed to help professionals in social service fields – social work, health care, criminal justice, education – critically evaluate their programs and turn data into actionable plans or create a base for grant writing.
Workshops will be offered for $40 per person per session, and attendees can choose an in-person format on GC’s campus or in Elkhart, or take the workshops online. The series includes two workshops:
Making Program Evaluations Useful
Come learn how assessing your program’s activities and outcomes can help you better meet the mission of your program and “tell the story” of your program to stakeholders. This workshop will demystify assessment processes so you can better understand how to measure and determine what is working and what needs improvement. You’ll leave this interactive workshop with a plan for next steps in evaluating your program.
Online: Wednesday, March 22, 9-11 a.m.
Elkhart: Elkhart Chamber of Commerce on Thursday, March 23, 9 – 11 a.m.
Goshen: Goshen College on Friday, March 24, 9 – 11 a.m.
Making Logic Models Useful
Logic models are valuable for understanding and expressing the purpose of your program. They can be narrative or graphic, but all are designed to help you explain how the right inputs will lead to meaningful outcomes in your programs. In this guided workshop, participants will draft a logic model and gain ideas on how it can be useful to them in program implementation and grant writing.
Online: Wednesday, April 19, 9-11 a.m.
