Upcoming Coffee Break Demonstrations

CFB 253: Beyond the Final Report: Creative Ways of Disseminating Evaluation Findings - Namrata Mahajan Patel

Thursday July 28th, 2016 2-2:20 PM 

Exemplary program evaluations are not only strong in design and methodology, but also creative in the dissemination of results so that findings are utilized to create change. This Coffee Break session will focus on innovative methods of sharing evaluation findings beyond the traditional report, including learning briefs for external audiences (e.g., policy makers), “bake sale” posters for program staff, and presentations for funders. Tips and tricks for each method will be shared along with examples of the final products used in real evaluations.

CFB : Supercharge Your Focus Groups: Using Adult Facilitation Techniques to Capture Rich Data - Lynne Franco

Thursday September 22nd, 2016 2-2:20 PM 

Focus groups have the potential to generate rich data for evaluation. The adult facilitation and learning literature has established techniques to guide participants to meaningful conversations, while ensuring a comfortable, dynamic, and fun environment. Drawing on these techniques, this coffee break will discuss methods that can be used to generate rich and meaningful data in group settings of 5 people or 50, and can draw out perspectives and foster group processing of data.
