Interactive online conversations featuring youth workers, young people and researchers

YouthREX partnered with professional information designer Chris Lysy
to offer two interactive webinars to support youth program evaluations.

User Experience (UX) Evaluation

Wednesday, December 1, 2021
1:00-2:30PM ET

How can evaluations of youth programs be enhanced by User Experience Design? What are emerging UX Design methods and tools for better understanding participants of youth programs?

An effective program evaluation ensures that the data collected, interpreted, and shared are relevant to program stakeholders.

We explored ways that UX strategies can improve the design of the process evaluation component of an evaluation of a youth program.

This webinar paid attention to recent innovations in online platforms and software tools that enhance youth participation in a program evaluation.

Creative Reporting in Evaluation

Wednesday, December 8, 2021
1:00-2:30PM ET

How can we share our evaluation findings in more creative, accessible, and engaging ways?
What tools can we start using today to enhance our reports and presentations?

Sharing evaluation insights can be fun and rewarding. This webinar challenged us to revisit the common ways we share evaluation findings and presented a number of creative solutions for keeping stakeholders engaged and informed.

Participants explored practical ways (infographic design, cartoon illustration, meme design, and social media reporting strategy) to mobilize knowledge and examined how Slidedoc Reporting can offer unique advantages to youth programs who are looking to create exciting and professional presentations through everyday software tools.
