Program evaluation during (and after) COVID-19

Demonstrating impact while adjusting to a novel context and planning for the future

About this session

The COVID-19 pandemic has altered the way society functions, including funding and expectations for nonprofits and social service programs. The evaluation of those programs must also be adjusted, but the unprecedented nature of the present moment means that guidance is hard to find. Fortunately, this novelty also presents opportunities for changes or growth in the evaluation of your programs. In this webinar, Dr. Patrick S. Tennant will present core evaluation strategies that are applicable in any situation (even this one) and the ways they can help you to innovate and demonstrate your impact.
