The description of the event.

Members of the Network Advisory Council and Core Services Committees will receive training from Linda Hofschire. No business will be conducted at this learning session.

Topics will include the logic model, theory of change, data-informed decision making and planning, and developing a community focused orientation when designing library programs and services. At the end of this workshop, attendees will:  

  1. Understand the evaluation/planning life cycle and terminology of logic models.

  2. Recognize the benefits of using data to inform decision-making and planning. 

  3. Recognize the value in being community-focused rather than library-focused when designing library programs and services. 

  4. Be able to apply their learning to evaluate a) proposals from Montana State Library staff and sub-committees and b) sub-committee reports to make informed decisions about services the Montana State Library provides. 

The workshop will be interactive and will feature discussions, hands-on activities for participants to apply their learning, reflection, and a workbook that participants can use electronically or download and print.
