MAR has teamed up with Outreach and Evaluation expert, Cindy Olney, from the NN/LM Outreach and Evaluation Resource Center (OERC) to offer a 4-part webinar series, eligible for up to 8 MLA CEs.
Mapping an Outreach Project: Start with Information; End with a Plan 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 can be effective tools for project planning and proposal writing. Assessment enables 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. This class will elaborate on information contained in the OERC Planning and Evaluation booklets.
