Developing a Logic Model: Teaching and Training Guide

Short Description

Designed as a course outline for leading logic models workshops, the authors provide an overview of all elements of model design.  Beginning with icebreaking activities to assess a group’s attitudes about evaluation and logic models, then a description of those models, the authors proceed to describe components, terminology, benefits, physical appearance, steps in development and using logic models to guide evaluation.  Techniques for teaching the development and use of logic models include light-hearted hands-on activities, such as the ‘logic’ of baking cookies.  Handouts, worksheets, and PowerPoint slides provide a guide for leading a team through development process.  Each section has clearly stated learning outcomes, purpose for each activity, supply list, and directions for leading group activities.  This guide could serve as a self-tutorial for someone new to evaluation, or by a team leader looking for techniques to engage a team and begin to foster a culture of evaluation.
