Hands-On Program Evaluation Workshop Series: Designing a Program Evaluation for your Organization
September 17, 2011 – 7:24 pm | No Comment

The York Institute of Health Research (YIHR) and the York University - TD Community Engagement Centre (CEC) present a workshop series designed to provide participants with the tools needed to develop a plan to evaluate a specific program. Content will be geared to the application of concepts. Please think of a program or project that you would like to evaluate, so that at the end of the four sessions, you have a draft of a program evaluation plan ready to enact

The workshops will be led by members of the YIHR Program Evaluation Unit (look under ‘About Us’).

Participants must register in advance for each session. It is possible to attend workshops separately, although they will build on each other and it is encouraged to sign up for all four in a series.

Location: All workshops will be held at the York University - TD Community Engagement Centre, Yorkgate Mall.
