Upcoming Workshop: Evaluating Land-Based Programs

 December 5, 2016
Posted by NWT Recreation and Parks Association
Join us for a two-day workshop on evaluating land-based programs with William Trousdale.

Do you lead or coordinate land-based programs? Are you looking to improve your program content and delivery? Are you in need of better ways to communicate the positive outcomes of your programs to funders and government?

The NWT Recreation and Parks Association and the NWT On The Land Collaborative Fund are co-hosting a two-day workshop on evaluating land-based programs at the Yellowknife Ski Club on February 7-8, 2017.

Evaluating Land-Based Programs will provide foundational training in monitoring and evaluation, showing how it can be used for program planning and modification, as well as reporting. The focus of the workshop will be on using values- and evidenced-based evaluation for land-based programs. The training will be targeted to the needs and interests of the participants. The training will also be interactive, using a case-based and learning-by-doing approach. Participants will conduct their own evaluation sketches during the training.

The workshop will be delivered by William Trousdale, President of EcoPlan International, with assistance by Katy Pollock, Senior Planning and Performance Analyst with GNWT Department of Health and Social Services. William is a globally-recognized and award-winning planner, economist, decision analyst, and tourism expert. He is an adjunct professor in the School of Community and Regional Planning at UBC and in the School of Resource and Environmental Management at SFU.
