[This message is posted on behalf of Michael Nunno, D.S.W. man2@cornell.edu , Beebe Hall - Family Life Development Center, College of Human Ecology, Cornell University, Ithaca NY 14853-4401, Tele: 607 254-5127, 255-7794 FAX: 607 255-4837, 255-8562 http://www.human.cornell.edu/fldc/ ] Save The Dates! JUNE 14-16, 2011 Building an evidence base for training effectiveness Location: CORNELL UNIVERSITY, Ithaca, New York – USA History and Sponsorship: In 2011, the National Human Services Training Evaluation Symposium (NHSTES) is co-sponsored by the Family Life Development Center. The faculty and staff of Cornell’s College of Human Ecology and its Family Life Development Center are proud to have been selected as the site for the 2011 Symposium. This is the first time that the Symposium has been held at a location other than The University of California at Berkeley. For the past 13 years, the NHSTES has been held on the University of California, Berkeley campus and has been co-sponsored by the California Social Work Education Center (CalSWEC), the California Department of Social Services (CDSS), and the National Staff Development and Training Association (NSDTA) of the American Public Human Services Association (APHSA). Due to California budget issues, the annual National Human Services Training Evaluation Symposium will now be held every other year on the UC Berkeley campus. During alternating years when the Symposium is NOT on the UC Berkeley campus, other campuses around the nation may take turns hosting this national event. About the Symposium: This invitational symposium brings together 40 to 60 national and international training evaluators in the HUMAN SERVICES FIELD to share and learn from each other. The theme for this three-day symposium is BUILDING AN EVIDENCE BASE FOR TRAINING EFFECTIVENESS. The planning committee continues to adhere to the original vision of the symposium, which includes participants sharing their evaluation struggles in an atmosphere of collaboration and support. The symposium will address a spectrum of issues to improve the quality and effectiveness of our current or future evaluation projects. Special emphasis will be on building an evidence base for training that improves the outcomes for families and children. What to expect in the 2011 Symposium: Symposium planners will welcome, but not be limited to, proposals that address the overall theme of BUILDING AN EVIDENCE BASE FOR TRAINING EFFECTIVENESS with the following sub-themes: § Evaluation designs that measure and ensure training fidelity § The impact on measurement instruments when training is used as an implementation strategy for an evidence-based program model § Role of training evaluation when implementing and evaluating evidence-based practices and program models § Using evaluation data to inform curriculum development § Designing theories of change that guide training evaluation § Transfer of learning You will receive information about proposal submissions and participation in early February, 2011. Links to the formal Invitation, Call for Facilitators, and Participant Form will be emailed to the Training Evaluation Listserv on or around February 1, 2011. If you have questions, you may contact Michael Nunno at Cornell: man2@cornell.edu . Proposals: All symposium proposals should utilize one of the following formats - 1. Hands-on workshops that address specific skills. 2. Discussion/small group activities to facilitate problem-solving. 3. Pre-symposium workshops that would lead to a collaborative project among participants. 4. Facilitated discussions on specific topics related to the overall symposium theme and sub-themes. *Proposals that are didactic and lecture-oriented are not encouraged. Deadlines for registration: * March 15, 2011: If you would like to participate as a facilitator * April 1 2011: If planning to just “relax, enjoy and participate” Criteria for participant selection: * Participants will be selected on a first-come, first-served basis. Due to the popularity of the symposium, registration may be limited to participants who 1) are active human services training evaluators or who administer human services evaluation programs, 2) can attend the entire symposium, and 3) submit their payment, registration form, and synopsis by April 1, 2011. Please ask to be put on the waiting list if you cannot attend the entire Symposium. The Symposium location: * The Symposium will be held on the Cornell University campus at the Statler Hotel and the J.W. Marriott Executive Education Center. Early room reservations for the Statler Hotel at a Symposium rate can be made by calling 607 254 2500 and stating that you are with the National Human Services Training Evaluation Symposium. * Other hotels near campus are the Best Western 607 272 6100, the Hilton Garden Inn (Downtown Ithaca) 607 277 8900, the Homewood Suites 607 266 0000.
