A One-Day Training Focused on Logic Models for Evaluation and Program Design

Are you getting the results you want? Is your organization achieving its mission? Can you do better work?

Evaluation is an integral part of program planning and achieving your goals. Logic models can help you communicate and demonstrate to your supporters, including foundations and government agencies, that their investments in your organization are delivering the best results.

Integrating both evaluation and logic models into your programs can ensure your non-profit organization adjusts its activities to meet the needs of your community while furthering your mission.

Come and learn a whole new way of thinking about what you are doing and why. Leading experts Cynthia C. Phillips, PhD and Lisa Wyatt Knowlton, EdD, will be your interactive guides on how to improve your organization's performance using logic models and evaluation to design your programs, helping ensure your activities will lead to desired results.

Program Overview

During this interactive day, you and your land and water resource colleagues will learn through a combination of dynamic presentations, dialogue and interactive small group sessions:

  • How to increase your impact through logic modeling and evaluation.
  • How to support new awareness and knowledge in program development and evaluation planning, including designing key metrics.
  • Logic model basics, including understanding the differences between activities, outputs, outcomes and impacts.
  • How evaluation methods and logic models can ensure you are doing the right work, and discover how you can do better work.
  • How to improve funding proposals with logic models.

In this workshop, we will use a common program plan model specifically created for conservation organizations that you will be able to use in your everyday work.
