Interviews and Focus Groups with Denise Belanger:

Friday, January 25th: 9:00am to noon
While what you need to know for conducting interviews and focus groups may seem self-evident at first glance, there are a number of considerations to keep in mind when undertaking these forms of data collection. This workshop will provide insight into what you may need to consider and what you may need to add to your 'toolbox' when undertaking interviews and focus groups in the context of evaluation.

Surveys and Questionnaires with David Patton:

Tuesday, Feb 5th: 9:00 to noon
Creating well-crafted survey instruments can provide for valuable data collection. This session will look at survey questions and responses, as well as analysis and data presentation.

Logic Models with Marianne Krawchuk:

Tuesday, March 5th: 9:00am to noon
Logic models are becoming increasingly important, not only for evaluation, but also for funders. Creating logic models that are clear and succinct can become an important tool for community based organizations to talk about their program, as well as articulate outcomes.

Engaging Special Populations with Larry Bremner:

Monday, April 15th: 1:00pm to 4:00pm
There are times when selecting more traditional data collection methods, such as interviews or surveys, may not be the best way of capturing clients ‘voices’. This session will look at considerations in engaging particular populations in evaluations, as well as introducing different data collections methods such as rubrics and visual methods.
