Evaluating Intergenerational Programs
OPAN Seminar (Older People and Ageing Research and Development Network)
Date: 19th June 2008
Time: 12:30pm – 2pm
Venue: Room 120, 1st Floor, Vivian Tower, Swansea University
The intergenerational literature is abundant with rich narratives about how programs provide children, youth and older adults with opportunities to learn about one another, to provide support and encouragement for each other, and become more involved in their communities. However, with the intergenerational studies field still in its infancy, there have been few extensive efforts to assess program impact.
This presentation will explore various methods and considerations in evaluating intergenerational programs. Several evaluation studies will be highlighted to illustrate the diversity of evaluation approaches.
Presented by Dr. Matthew Kaplan, Associate Professor, Intergenerational Programs and Aging, Penn State University in Pennsylvania (U.S.) and Research Associate at Beth Johnson Foundation.
This event is free to attend and there is no need to register.
