In Ingenuity’s 2018 Data & Evaluation Track, we will slow down on this push toward all things data and participants will begin with learning about program design, objective mapping, and logic models. As the Track progresses, you will be able to explore the art of assessment tools and processes, and performing assessments. Your participation in the Track will end with a deep dive in data analysis, interpretation, and visualization, and learning how to tell your story through data.
Instead of starting with a focus on how to manipulate, analyze, visualize, and report on findings from data, we’re going to take a few steps back and first unpack the what and why of data collection specific to your organization's mission and vision to enable the development of high-quality goals that can be clearly communicated and produce meaningful outcomes. Participants will then transition to the how of data collection and focus on assessment development and performing assessments. Once we've mastered the what, why, and how of data collection we will shift our focus to cost-effective data analysis and processes; and training on how to develop an impact narrative for stakeholdes and present information that will provide the desired outcomes such as funding, training, or other supports.
The 2018 Data & Evaluation Track will guide you through Planning for Quality 101, 102, and 103; Implementing Quality 201 and 202; and Reflecting and Revising Quality 301 with hands-on assistance and individualized coaching of a field leader. You'll work with a cohort of peers from other arts organizations who are wrestling with similar questions about why and how to use data to support program and organizational goals. In the process, you'll work through your own case study and design an approach that helps you take the next steps in improving your ability to use data to tell your story. Participants who complete the full program will receive a Certificate of Completion.
To optimize learning, participating in this program is limited to 20. Participants must commit to the full program and can include:
