Beyond the SEA: June 18, 2014 – Once Upon a Time: Using Evaluation Findings to Tell Your Project’s Story

Posted by on May 20th, 2014 Posted in: All Posts

Time: Noon to 1:00 pm (EST)

Presenter: Cindy Olney

Once upon a time, there was an evaluation report that people actually read. Sound like a fairy tale? This presentation will show you that it IS possible to create more audience-friendly evaluation reports by incorporating story structures found in fairy tales and inspirational speeches. The presentation covers a five-step process for developing reports, then shows two different structures that can be used to organize narrative and content so the report is interesting and motivational to the audience. The formats covered in this webinar can be adapted for written reports, presentations, and even elevator speeches. Don’t let your data get in the way of a good story; use your data to enhance it instead.
Cynthia (Cindy) Olney, PhD, is the evaluation specialist at the National Network of Libraries of Medicine Outreach Evaluation Resource Center and has more than 20 years of experience with applied research and program evaluation. She owns her own consulting company, which specializes in evaluation consultation to libraries, academic health science programs, and community-based organizations. Cindy is also a recovering boring-report writer.
