Logic Model 101: Uncovering the Hidden Logic Behind Our Programs

Feb. 17 from 12 to 1 pm in FCPD (LIB-507)

Workshop is repeated on Feb. 18.

Every program, office, or project has a “logic” behind it – a set of assumptions about how our activities and services will lead to desired goals; the relationship between what we do and what we get. Yet often this logic is unstated – hidden.

Understanding and being able to convey this logic is often the key to obtaining external funding, mobilizing internal support, giving guidance to program staff, and making choices about resource allocation. In this 1-hour workshop, we will:

  • Define the idea of a logic model and its main components, and provide you with examples.
  • Explore why, when, and how to use the logic model
  • Give you an opportunity to sketch out a logic model for an existing or proposed program of your own

This workshop is hosted by both FCPD and the Office of Research and Sponsored programs. It is presented by Dr. Don Haviland and Dr. Alejandra Priede from the College of Education.

Register for the Workshop: To register, email your name and the date you plan to attend to by Feb. 10. Lunch will be served.
