Visionary Evaluation for a Sustainable, Equitable Future


Keynote: Beverly Parsons

We are living in the Anthropocene - a time in which humanity is exerting its influence on all of the earth's ecosystems. At the same time, humans are more interconnected than at any other time. The significance, impact, and pace of change is unprecedented, leading us to new evolutions in our social and natural world.

Learn how you can contribute to a sustainable, equitable future as a user and/or practitioner of evaluation in both your personal and professional daily actions and lives.

Learn about six principles of living as a "Visionary Evaluative". The principles highlight a commitment to equity and the sustainability of nature as core values. They emphasize an orientation of humility, compassion, and transparency when engaging in a world of living, entangled systems with obvious and hidden intersectionalities. The principles also address engaging in deep praxis—mindful and challenging reflection on what is being learned through the intersection of values, iterative action and inquiry, theory, outcomes, and vision.

Logic Model Basics


Genevieve Manset PhD

Literacy Services: Education Research & Program Evaluation


Thursday, January 28, 2021 4:00-5:30 pm HST

This workshop will be followed by a H-PEA online Social, 5:30-6:00 pm HST

For event registration - Click here!

Registration deadline: January 25, 2021,  11:59pm, HST


Tools like logic models can guide program managers in the design, implementation, and evaluation of their program. Logic models can also support communication about program elements, process, and outcomes. This workshop will include a basic overview of logic model design and use, followed by a hands-on activity where participants will practice designing a logic model, and concluding with a discussion about applications to participants’ programs. While all are welcome, this workshop will be designed specifically for practitioners who are new to logic models, using examples of application to relatively small, community-based programs.


By the end of the workshop, participants will: 

1. have a better understand of how logic models can be used to guide design, implementation, and evaluation of their program;

2. have defined the elements of a simple logic model;

3. designed a simple logic model based on the community-based program and;

4. identified next steps for designing a logic model for their own program

This workshop will be offered virtually through ZOOM. A ZOOM link will be sent with a reminder email prior to the event.
