In the Weeds Program: Evaluating Digital Engagement
November 29, 2022 @ 1:00 pm
NHA Surveying Virtual Programs
Many humanities practitioners jumped into the digital space in 2020 in a frantic attempt to stay in touch and engaged with our audiences as we were all thrust into social distancing. Many of us had little experience and only the beginnings of a plan in those early pandemic days, but we have learned a lot in the past 2+ years. Finding effective ways to measure the impact of our digital projects is critical to determining how we will continue to work in virtual spaces moving forward.
Whether hosting online events or managing projects that live online, we benefit from understanding who is accessing our work and how it impacts them. Presenters will discuss effective methods for evaluation, depending on the type of program, how to develop questions that gather the information you need, and both the opportunities and limitations of evaluating digital programs. They will offer tips based on their own experience and point to resources that already exist to support evaluation.
Please be sure to RSVP below for this free event. You must RSVP to receive the Zoom link and event recording.
