Evaluation and audience insight is key to successful planning and effective use of resources. This workshop will introduce you to a variety of evaluation methods, provide top tips for doing evaluation and the essentials of analysing data. 

This is a great one for people just starting a project or planning one, those new in post or organisations who want to start to develop a culture of evaluation.

We’ll cover when and where to evaluate to use your time best, different techniques for different situations, planning and how to make the most of your data. This workshop will help you to super-power your visitor experience, learning and interpretation through evaluation. The aims of this workshop are to leave delegates:

Before today I was…Not very knowledgeable of the amount of evaluation techniques to use and how telling they can be/how specific they can be

During the session I was thinking…There’s a lot more to evaluation than I had imagined

As a result of today I will…Be much more critical in future evaluations of projects/events. I feel much more confident. Thank you!
