Watch here for a taster of the workshop, presented by Professor Paul Flatau.
The one day workshop is designed to familiarise participants with the language and key concepts of outcomes measurement and evaluation, and introduce practical methods, tools and instruments to support quantitative and qualitative data collection. Participants will leave knowing how to develop a program logic (and for what purpose), developing and use outcomes measurement frameworks, data collection plans, design a simple survey and conduct interviews and focus groups, within ethical guidelines. Participants will also learn how to store and manage data, with tips for effective analysis, as well as communication and reporting on findings.
We will also explore links between outcomes measurement, research and evaluation, and explore the relevant National frameworks and tools that can be used to guide approaches to measurement that are informed by cultural safety. There will be time throughout the day to reflect together on the existing culture and practices across various sectors that we can draw on to support the work of understanding the difference we make. We finish with all participants creating an action list to ignite outcome measurement in their organisation.
