London, UKLearning NewsCharity Learning Consortium

Donald Kirkpatrick, the ‘Father’ of Evaluation, will be making a guest appearance at a special Evaluation webinar for charities around the world on 30 August. Evaluation experts Jim & Wendy Kirkpatrick are once again hosting the free, annual webinar - supported by The Charity Learning Consortium in the UK.

Charities around the globe are once again set to benefit from the expertise of Jim & Wendy Kirkpatrick, in a complimentary Evaluation webinar especially for charities working in the voluntary sector at 3pm on 30th August.

Donald Kirkpatrick, who devised the original Evaluation theories, will be making a special guest appearance during the webinar – which is being promoted in the UK by The Charity Learning Consortium, a group of more than 100 voluntary sector organisations collaborating to make eLearning affordable.

Charities, Housing Associations and not for profits working in the voluntary sector can register for free herecorporate organisations may also join, but will be charged.

Last year’s highly successful webinar was attended by more than 250 L&D professionals from charitable organisations around the world. This year Jim and Wendy Kirkpatrick will be looking at Evaluation Levels Three and Four. The webinar, which focuses on Creating Believable Value, is suitable for everyone, however – whether they attended or not last year.

Last year, members of The Charity Learning Consortium were thrilled to participate and really reaped the benefit. As in 2011, it is entirely free to all charities, housing associations and not-for-profits working in the voluntary sector around the world – not just members of the Consortium.

“We’re incredibly grateful to the Kirkpatricks for donating their time and expertise once again, to help further the success of valuable L&D in the charitable sector,” said Martin Baker, founder and CEO, The Charity Learning Consortium. “We’re particularly thrilled to be welcoming Donald Kirkpatrick for a special guest appearance this year.”

Further details of the webinar are on The Charity Learning Consortium website.

Please note that the webinar is at 3pm in the UK (British Summer Time) – please use a free online time zone calculator if you are publishing information about this webinar in other countries.
