With the end of March, FSLD – Polish team of Youth Impact project – finalized blended learning evaluation course aimed at representatives of organizations implementing projects in the field of supporting youth employment (of 15-24 years old people). The course included e-learning materials carried out on the Moodle platform, as well as 4 workshop meetings via Zoom.
The course was carried out in two groups, with participants from various organizations, from different parts of Poland, sharing the same goal of studying evaluation to better conduct projects for young people.
During the workshops, the participants learned how to plan evaluation, decide on evaluation criteria, ask right questions, choose methods of conducting research, analyze data and formulate recommendations. They were also introduced to advanced impact evaluation methods, and also learned more about the specificity of conducting evaluation among young people.
The feedback about the course was very positive. The participants said that they learned much more than they have expected, the manner of presenting the knowledge was nicely structured and homework exercises helped them in developing new attitude to their project.
The participants also gave some constructive feedback on how the course can be improved – soon we will be able to present our upgraded (even better than before!) Toolkit and other materials.
