How to write a practical program evaluation in one day.

A clear understanding of what you want to achieve is essential when planning your program evaluation.

The Effective Evaluation training day hosted by Acting Manager Rachel Meade, and presented by experienced evaluation consultant, Dr Stacey Waters, was a practical workshop held in Bunbury last week.

The workshop outlined how important it is to have a defined goal and reminded participants how the objectives and strategies need to directly relate to what you want to achieve.

Whilst this seems logical, too often it’s not the case. We can get caught up in the intervention and forget about what it is we want to achieve.

Attending participants worked on their projects throughout the day; utilising the knowledge and skills from the training to develop a comprehensive evaluation plan for their own project.

The practical evaluation templates and accessible resources were valued by participants as they could take-away the simple tools to share with their colleagues and use immediately in their workplace.

The Effective Evaluation training day has now been delivered in Northam, Bunbury and Perth. Useful tools from this training are available on the Know Injury Knowledge Hub.
