We frequently support professional development workshops with a clear evaluation plan for before, during, and after the event. Below are some sample activities for workshop evaluation design.
Registration surveys to gauge the demographics, goals, and content knowledge of the workshop participants
Results can be used to fine-tune the workshop topics and schedule
Daily feedback gathered during short end-of-day surveys
Observations made by on-site evaluator
Daily debrief with workshop leaders
Results can be used to modify remaining portion of the workshop
End-of-workshop survey can be used to measure if participant goals were met, knowledge gained, and/or analysis of change
Follow-up (implementation) survey
Measures retention, change, usability of workshop content
