In-House Workshop

On September 5th Health in Common will host its first full-day, in-house evaluation workshop.

We are excited to work with 20 participants on focus group and interview facilitation skills, giving everyone a chance to workshop new skills throughout the day. Keep your eye out for future workshops, or contact us to visit your workplace and partner with you to deliver training that is geared to your organization.

Don’t forget to sign up for the eBulletin and eNewsletter for information about upcoming training events.

Survey Support for Web-based Tools

Are you using an online survey program like Survey Monkey? Fluid Surveys (a Canadian online survey site) has created Fluid Surveys University, a site full of resources for conducting surveys. If you are looking for hands on help using web-based evaluation tools, Health in Common can provide you with technical support to design, administer and analyze your surveys.
