Throughout the coming year, the Partnership will be presenting a webinar series focused on all things data!
Dr. Sarah Heinemeier of Compass Evaluation and Research will present beginner- and intermediate-level topics on evaluation planning, data knowledge, instrument development and selection, data management and analysis, and data uses for program improvement and development. These sessions are intended to delve deeper into many of the topics that were introduced during in-person data workshops hosted by the Partnership in June and July of 2015.
The first workshop, “What are Data and when are they High Quality?” takes place this Wednesday, January 27th at noon. This webinar will explore what we mean when we talk about “data,” or pieces of information that are used to answer questions, make decisions, and communicate about programs. In addition, this webinar will provide tips and strategies for recognizing, collecting, and managing data that are high quality and useful for program reporting. A very limited number of spaces remain for this webinar, and you can register by clicking here.
Presentation slides and other materials will be posted online after each webinar, and a full schedule of the webinar series is also available online. If you have questions or would like additional information about the webinar series, please contact Megan Gray, Program Coordinator (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The webinar series is made possible by funding support from the Race to the Top – Early Learning Challenge (RTT-ELC) Smart Start Data Project via the North Carolina Partnership for Children.
