Barbara O'Neill, Extension Specialist in Financial Resource Management at Rutgers Cooperative Extension, talks about assessing programs using Critical Incident Technique, a qualitative research method based on personal stories and descriptive data.
Bob Bertsch's insight:
I am always interested in talking about alternative forms of program planning and evaluation. Barb O'Neill's article in the Journal of Extension, "Assessing Program Impact with the Critical Incident Technique," (http://www.joe.org/joe/2013june/tt2.php) gave me a reason to invite her to the podcast.
I've been familiar with the great work Barb has been doing on Twitter, @moneytalk1, so we talked about that as well.
As always, I welcome your comments and suggestions for the podcast.
Social media can be a powerful tool for Extension educators to expand their reach and engage with clients. Communities of practice and state systems are increasingly using Facebook, Twitter, and other social media as part of their programming efforts. This presents challenges for program evaluation as traditional evaluation methods rely on information not always available in social media.
In this session, Sarah Baughman (http://www.scoop.it/u/sarah-baughman) situates social media in the context of program evaluation and offers tips and suggestions for evaluating social media activities. Emphasis will be placed on tools to help measure reach and engagement through social media.
