Re-Thinking How To Plan and Evaluate Workplace Education Programs: Innovations in New York State.
In March and April of 1992, 60 representatives of state-funded workplace education programs in New York attended day-long regional workshops to identify ways of improving program planning and evaluation methods. After the workshops, the participants returned to their home programs, organized local evaluation teams, and developed action plans to clarify their programs' goals, strengths, and problems and to suggest possible improvement strategies. In May 1992, the participants reconvened to present their draft action plans and the team process used to develop the plans. As a result of the workshop project, many of the action plans developed were incorporated into revised program funding proposals, several representatives who had participated in the workshops undertook special team-based planning and evaluation projects, New York's State Education Department began to revise its application format for workplace program funding, and many program participants developed links with other workplace educators in the United States and Canada. Possible future actions in the areas of staff development, collaborative site-level planning and evaluation, and collaborative statewide policy development were identified. (MN)
