Unit Description

Program logic models depict the activities or actions taken in a program, and the expected short, medium, and long-term outcomes expected to be achieved. For example, if a school introduces a new transition-to-school program; what activities does it involve (classroom visits, parent information sessions); and what outcomes are they hoping to achieve in the short-term (child comfort in the setting) and in the longer-term (parent engagement with school)?

The process of developing program logic models helps individuals and teams in many fields better articulate exactly what it is they are trying to achieve in their work, and acts to get everyone on “the same page”.  Logic models are also a necessary first step in designing an evaluation that seeks to understand what works and for whom. In this unit, you will learn about the theory and practice of program logic modelling, and its uses for program development and evaluation as a type of research.
