WEBINAR Professional Development Training Series

The Council for Opportunity in Education (COE) is exploring innovative and economical ways to bring professional development training to the comfort of your office. We have begun a series of trainings that involve participation through a combination of web-based presentations and conference calls called Webinars. These low-cost trainings (no travel, lodging, or meal costs) will enable program staff to receive high quality professional development and remain in their office to provide services to their participants with minimal interruption. Space is limited. Register early!

NOTEFor any webinars for which there is a cost, payment must be made by credit card. No purchase orders will be accepted,
even if your registration is processed successfully.

2:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. (ET)

NOTE — Date is different than advertised by the U.S. Department of Education. Available for Talent Search and Upward Bound practioners only.

Free for Everyone
While it is a great idea to use existing data for program improvement and making program decisions, putting it in practice is a challenge. We also know that data alone does not
necessarily inform decision making. In this session, we discuss ways in which Upward Bound and Talent Search Programs can use existing data, particularly, the data collected for APR, to facilitate discussions for program improvement and to showcase program results. We will discuss how to identify data elements that are available, what analyses might be used, how to plan tasks to create reports, and limitations of using monitoring data
for program decisions.
