This course introduces a six-step model, developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, that guides the process of conducting program evaluation. Participants learn how to discuss and conduct program evaluations with their colleagues. The course promotes critical thinking on the accuracy, feasibility, ethics, and use of program evaluations. This course is to develop participants’ technical skills in planning, conducting, and using program evaluations. Participants develop an evaluation plan for use in their organization or community. Class assignments are done in teams, and participants are encouraged to register with a colleague.

The course is intended for people working in public health, including community-based organizations, health care organizations and health plans, nonprofit organizations, education agencies, and state and local health departments.

10.5 in-person contact hours and 6 weeks online mentoring.
