Forming and Utilizing Logic Models in Program Development
Program accountability and sustainability is routinely required by funders and community stakeholders. Developing and articulating to stakeholders the resources required, the nature, intent and purpose of programs and their associated outcomes in the simplest of terms is needed. Logic models provide a conceptual framework that demonstrates and clearly communicates the steps of developing, implementing, and sustaining an educational program. Specifically, logic models help identify key components (i.e., inputs, activities, outputs, and outcomes) that guide the planning, implementing, managing, evaluating, and reporting processes of the program.
This webinar will begin with an introduction to the core components of logic models and their ability to assist with program development, evaluation processes, and communication about the program. Examples of various logic models and how they are utilized in developing and evaluating programs will be shared. Discussion will then occur on how logic models can serve as a tool for engaging community partners in programmatic efforts and for preparing Family Life Educators who may work with community non-profits.
By the end of this webinar, attendees will be able to:
- Gain a foundational knowledge of the components of logic models
- Understand how logic models are utilized in program delivery and evaluation
- Communicate how to develop a logic model for programmatic and educational purposes
