Is evaluation scary? Do logic models just look like a bunch of confusing boxes on a page? Do you need practical skills in evaluating your public health initiatives? If you answered YES to any of these questions, the Center TRT Introduction to Practical Evaluation workshop is for you.

In this training you will learn the nuts and bolts of evaluation, discover the power of logic models, and learn practical approaches to evaluating your policy and environmental change interventions.

During the workshop we will explore:

  • different types of evaluation,
  • the steps involved in implementing an evaluation,
  • the importance and role of stakeholders in evaluation,
  • how to create and use a logic model (for a specific intervention addressing healthy eating, active living or breastfeeding), and
  • how practice-based evaluation helps build the evidence base for policy and environmental change interventions to prevent obesity.

This workshop will include applied learning and plenty of interaction.
