Workforce Development Logic Model and Evaluation Guide

By: Brad Sewell, Program Measurement and Evaluation Coordinator 

With the work of the Workforce Development team led by Tanya Hall, CD Regional Educator, a new structure for coordinated approaches and reporting has been developed across all Extension Program Areas.

During the fourth webinar on 10/27, Brad Sewell introduced a new workforce development logic model and an evaluation guide and question bank that may be used for any Program Area or discipline.  The logic model maps out the outcomes common to all workforce development programs. The Evaluation Guide and Question Bank provides sample evaluation questions, direction on how to report the results, and suggested text for posting results in an impact statement.

Resources for workforce development are posted on the Hub, https://extension.purdue.edu/hub/logic-models/.

It included learning from the Department of Workforce Development (DWD), a panel of workforce development agencies/partners, examining Extension’s workforce development programs and brainstorming next steps.
