Webinar: Data-Driven Decision Making: From Myth to Reality

HelloInsightWebinar Web

Presented by Hello Insight


Many afterschool programs today are expected to serve more young people with fewer resources than ever before. How can program evaluation data help you make good decisions and use resources wisely?    

Join us for a virtual workshop on becoming a high-impact learning organization! We’ll review strategies for making sure feedback obtained from program evaluation finds its way into daily practice easily and effectively.

Participants will:

  • Reflect on the benefits and challenges of data-driven decision making
  • Discover the advantages of using social and emotional learning (SEL) outcomes to guide your program planning
  • Learn about how The Beam Center has integrated SEL data into their decision-making practices from guest presenters Brian Cohen, the Executive Director, and Grace Freedman, PhD, Director of Development and Strategy
