Foundations of Leadership Training, Pt. 2

6 December 2018, 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m., LRC-215
Host: Kelly Enos

One of the best ways to solicit feedback about educational programs and service areas is to conduct a focus group.  Compared to surveys, focus groups usually are used to uncover more in-depth responses to fewer issues.  Participants can hear each other’s ideas and respond to them.  Focus groups compliment survey data as well.     

In this workshop, attendees will learn how easy it is to prepare and conduct a focus group and use the results for program or service area improvements.   At the end of the workshop series, attendees will be presented a certificate of completion.
