North Carolina State University has an ongoing series of eXtension Community of Practice webinars that they would like county and state staff to join. The webinars last one hour and occur on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at noon west coast time.
Below is the announcement.
Happy New Year and welcome to the eXtension Evaluation Community of Practice monthly webinar. Our first session is in two weeks--Jan. 19, 3-4PM ET--and the link appears below. In 2011, the E-CoP Leadership Team decided to offer target separate webinars to specialists and to community practitioners. I (Ben Silliman, NC 4-H Specialist) will continue to facilitate a monthly webinar/community for 4-H agents and staff. We want to understand how to use evaluation to promote positive youth development-- not just document youth outcomes--and want to stay practitioner-friendly. New learning, program samples, Q&A, and dialogue are all part of the experience. As you see below, topics will be a little biased toward 4-H Science since that's a big component of local programs and a huge thrust nationally. State Science teams are encouraged to come aboard monthly and work on statewide capacity-building in between webinars.
Tentative topics for the first few months are as follows:
1/19: Evaluation as Positive Youth Development;
2/16 Experiential Learning and Evaluation;
3/16 Workforce Skills Outcomes for Camp Counselors;
4/20 Focus Groups with Adults and Youth;
5/18 Program "Dosage" and Outcomes;
6/15 Goal Setting Life Skills.
Persons from all levels (program assistants, agents, and specialists) and all disciplines are welcomed, but know that our focus will be more strongly on youth program evaluation. Don't forget to bring your headset and come on early to adjust sound levels.
Specialist webinars will meet less often and be announced later. The link to this month's 4-H/Youth webinar is below:
