Can't visit the Foundation Center this week? Check out our live webinars. You can also visit our Multimedia Archive for recorded webnars, short videos, and podcasts. New this week: a great short video from our Cleveland Office, Showing That Your Work Matters: Robert Fischer on Program Evaluation. As our Expert in Residence, Kevin Monroe, showed us this month, results are an important component to sustaining your organization's programs.
In this video, Dr. Robert Fischer, Research Associate Professor and Co-Director of the Center on Urban Poverty and Community Development at Case Western Reserve University discusses why program evaluation is important, some of the pitfalls that can occur, as well as some low-cost, easy ways for organizations to get started in evaluating their programs.
Have a great weekend!
