Seminar Room 6.1, L6, The Hub, Charles Perkins Centre, The University of Sydney
When health promotion teams across NSW are implementing more innovative strategies than ever before, building the capacity of staff to plan and undertake rigorous but also practical evaluations is vital. This six-hour intensive workshop is suited to a health promotion professional with some responsibility for evaluation of a health promotion program and basic evaluation knowledge and skills. It will build on basic health promotion evaluation foundations and provide health promotion professionals with guidance in using pragmatic methods for evaluating local interventions.
The workshop is being delivered as a partnership between the Australian Health Promotion Association (AHPA) and the University of Sydney’s Physical Activity, Nutrition and Obesity Research Group (PANORG) based at the Prevention Research Collaboration and Sydney School of Public Health.
Participants will strengthen their understanding of and develop knowledge and skills in applying best practice evaluation approaches to the whole intervention cycle. This is not a lecture - the workshop will involve in-depth discussion and feedback on your planned or in-progress evaluation from experts in health promotion evaluation as well as peer-to-peer exchange. All registrants should bring along an evaluation project (at any stage of development or implementation) which they can use in practical exercises throughout the workshop. The workshop aims to develop professional skills in applying an evaluation lens to health promotion interventions/programs, developing a logic model and evaluation framework or plan to guide the evaluation, and consolidating a pragmatic approach to data collection.
