Logic Models as a Tool to “Conceptualize Change”

Next Session: 3/3/2016, Wausau: This hands-on workshop provides an introduction to logic models as a popular tool for conceptualizing the change your program seeks to contribute to.  It includes an overview of logic models and a focus on developing your own logic model based on your needs assessment (or other related) data. Please come prepared with your needs assessment (or other data set) that you will conceptualize your program based upon.  Additional change models and how to use them in conceptualizing your program design will be introduced.

Participants can expect to engage in a number of fun, practical exercises that will help them think about their programs in different ways and confidently apply new skills directly to their own work. Links to resources for more in-depth information on particular subject areas of interest will also be provided. We encourage participants to come with an existing or yet-to-be program effort in mind

This interactive workshop module starts at 9:00 AM and ends at approximately 3:00 PM, with lunch included.
