This webinar is the fourth in a four-part series, Evaluation as a Strategy for Building Creative Youth Development, which will examine evaluation as a strategy for building, improving, and funding creative youth development programs. The growing strength of the creative youth development movement necessitates that programs, staff, partners, and funders re-think fundamental ways of doing business --program design, staffing, and evaluation to create more active and ongoing roles for young people as critical thinkers, designers, and decision makers. <p> </p> Join us for the fourth webinar in the series, Partnering for Large-Scale, Quantitative Evaluation. In light of the growing demand for more rigorous evidence – from government and private funders – this final webinar will look at what it takes to conduct quasi-experimental and experimental research into the impact of CYD programs. We will look at the demands such studies place on programs and their staff and consider when programs are ready to take on those demands. We will also explore the kinds of research partnerships that CYD organizations might undertake with external partners in order to learn about and conduct these demanding, but powerful, forms of evaluation. The webinar series is chaired by Dennie Palmer Wolf and informed by many voices from the CYD field including: Julia Gittleman, Steven Holochwost, Gladys Hidalgo, Ruth Mercado-Zizzo, James Miles, Käthe Swaback and others. <p> </p> This webinar will be interactive and you can expect: 1) pre-assignments that will alert you to the big ideas, prepare you to examine your own current practices, and allow you to send in questions ahead of time; 2) an exchange of distinctive perspectives from the presenters; and 3) ample time for audience questions. <p> </p> We encourage programs to support teams of participants in order to sustain the inquiry and conversation between and beyond the individual sessions .All materials will be sent to participants in advance of each session.
