In this online, interactive workshop, you will learn how to conduct an assessment, use a logic model to plan a new project or reassess a current one, and prepare for a meaningful evaluation. Attend this course to learn project planning practices that help you build in accountability and strategic thinking, reveal assumptions, and create a targeted effort with measurable results.
During the preliminary Get Started and Get Ready portions of the course, you'll engage in self-guided learning with your project team for up to 1.5 hours. Then, when we Get Together online (12 hours over 3 days), you'll spend time in live learning sessions, self-guided learning with your project team, and project team consultations with an instructor.
