Introduction to Evaluation Online Workshop
May 7 @ 9:00 am - June 4 @ 5:00 pm
Do you need to demonstrate the impact of projects in your organisation?
Do you want to improve the design and implementation of your programmes?
Are you tasked with carrying out an evaluation, but don’t know where to start?
Consider enrolling in our four-week online course run by the NIHR CLAHRC North Thames Academy to address these challenges. This course has been recently updated. It is aimed at staff in frontline services at NHS Trusts, CCGs and Local Authorities, who have limited experience conducting service evaluations and would like to learn about evaluations in flexible time.
After participating in this course, you will have the skills and knowledge to undertake your own evaluation of a local programme or service. Inspired by the content of our popular face-to-face evaluation course, the online course will cover:
Different types of evaluation, including their pros and cons
How to select suitable methods and approaches for evaluating a local programme or service
Practical skills and tips in using evaluation methods and approaches
Ways of sharing your evaluation findings to make an impact
Teaching will be delivered entirely online. You’ll learn by watching videos and lecture slides; interacting through activities and questions; and learning from others by taking part in the discussions that accompany each step. You’ll also develop a plan for a real life evaluation you may have to conduct.
Who is this workshop suitable for?
Staff from NHS trusts, local authorities and clinical commissioning groups who need to evaluate local programmes or services as part of their work. The course is not aimed at academics or researchers.
What preparation is needed?
Participants should attend the course with an evaluation in mind that they may have to carry out. No previous knowledge of evaluation is required, or experience of study design and statistics.
Participants will receive a certificate of completion if they undertake at least 80% of the course activities.
