More Info


An interactive workshop focused on the basics of program evaluation. The session includes information on building stakeholder engagement, evaluation planning, methods and processes.

Intended for staff with no formal evaluation training, the workshop focuses on helping participants understand the evaluation process and developing awareness and skills for implementing a basic program evaluation in house. Information useful in working with external evaluators is also included.

The workshop will involve presentations, small group exercises, and discussion. The session will conclude with an informal lunch session in which participants can ask evaluators specific questions regarding their evaluation needs.

Speakers: Dr. Maryann Mason and Sarah Welch

This session is co-sponsored by the Alliance for Research in Chicagoland Communities (ARCC) and the Lurie Children’s Hospital Smith Child Health Research Program.

The didactic part of the session will be live streamed.

Session is at capacity for in-person attendance. You can participate in the live stream or RSVP for January 29 Repeat Session. Space is also very limited for that session.

Light breakfast and lunch will be served. Parking validation will be available.
