W110: Economic Impact of Professional Development Activities

Track: Pre-Convention Workshops

Session Number: 2284
Date: Tue, Jul 17th, 2018
Time: 12:30 PM - 4:30 PM


This session requires a ticket and is not included as part of standard registration.

Professional development is part of the solution for any practice problem or error, yet it is often minimally funded or even cut when budgets are tight. What is the return on investment (ROI) for professional development activities? Requested to be repeated by last year’s convention participants, this workshop uses examples to teach how to calculate economic impact for various types of programs. Small group exercises and lively discussion demonstrate how you can incorporate financial impact evaluation into the planning and coordination of learning activities. For maximum benefit, bring a tablet or calculator to the workshop.
