AIR Event: Measuring Program Implementation Webinars
Why is it important to know how well a program was implemented? How do you know whether a program was implemented as designed? For answers to these questions and more, join Dr. Chris Hulleman for two engaging webinars on evaluating program implementation.
- Measuring Program Implementation | October 1, 2019 | 12-1:15 PM ET
- Developing a Program Implementation Measurement Framework | October 10, 2019 | 12-1:15 PM ET
Webinar 1: Dr. Hulleman will review the importance of developing a logic model and using systematic measurement approaches to examine program implementation. He will review the merits and limitations of different methods for measuring implementation in research and development projects and share tools and resources to help the DRK-12 community develop and refine their implementation measurement plans. A preview of Webinar 2 will encourage participants to return for part two of the discussion, during which a DRK-12 principal investigator (PI) or co-PI will serve as a discussant to share an authentic example of approaches and challenges for measuring implementation in his/her project.
Webinar 2: In the second part of this series, Dr. Hulleman will demonstrate how to develop an implementation measurement framework, aligned to a program logic model. The measurement framework provides a foundation for systematically examining implementation. Dr. Hulleman will discuss practical considerations, such as reporting burden and availability and quality of data. Then he will invite the DRK-12 discussant to share challenges encountered in measuring program implementation and receive feedback on how best to identify appropriate measurement indicators and thresholds for the key components of programs they are studying.
Both webinars are designed to be interactive. There will be time for audience participation and questions throughout both webinars. Participants are encouraged to attend both webinars but may elect to participate in one of the two webinars in this series.
