Part 6. Workshop evaluation

TIME: 1 hour

AIMS: By the end of this section participants will:

1. Complete an evaluation of the workshop

PREPARATION:

1. Review TRAINER OVERVIEW and steps in PROCEDURE.

MATERIALS:

1. Flip chart 1, "Workshop Aims and Objectives".

2. Handout 29, "Workshop Evaluation".

TRAINER OVERVIEW

We need to measure the success of the workshop (our "project"). We can measure our success in many ways throughout the workshop-how well the problem-solving and planning exercises go, how well participants carry out the practicals, questions that come up, evaluation questionnaires, etc., and follow-up contacts after the workshop. Here we include an evaluation questionnaire to help us get some feedback that we can analyse along with the information we get from our other evaluation techniques.

PROCEDURE:

Step 1. Review flip chart 1 and explain that you are interested in finding out if the participants feel these objectives have been achieved.

Step 2. Distribute handout 29 and ask participants to complete the questions.
