Mapping an Outreach Project: Online Training Opportunity

Tuesday, February 10th, 2015

Mapping an Outreach Project: Start with Information, End with a Plan

Cindy Olney, PhD, of the NN/LM Outreach Evaluation Resource Center will present 4 1-hr online sessions with the potential for up to 8 CEs. This 4-session webinar series is designed for anyone who wants to garner support, financial or otherwise, for a new project or service. You will learn how assessment and evaluation are effective tools for project planning and proposal writing. Community assessment allows you to gather compelling information about the need and viability of your project. It also helps you build relationships with potential partners. Adding evaluation methods to your program plan helps you “begin with the end in mind,” making desired results the centerpiece of your project proposal. While special attention will be given to applications for NN/LM GMR awards and subcontracts, the information is relevant to many types of project proposals.

Objectives
After completing this series, participants will be able to do the following:

•How people adopt new ideas. Know the factors that influence people to adopt new ideas and technology so you can choose the best strategies for your project. (Part 1)
•Meeting the Community through Community Assessment. Gather community information that is most effective for planning your project. (Part 2)
•Planning Outcomes-Based Outreach Programs. Use a project-planning tool that allows you to logically link resources and activities to desired results. (Part 3)
•Adding Evaluation to Your Plan and Next Steps: Proposal Writing. Incorporate evaluation into your project and understand how your plan can be expanded into a full proposal. (Part 4)
