Content

This unit builds on the knowledge and skills developed through the co/prerequisite unit Planning, Management and Evaluation (HSH323), expanding content specifically related to implementation and evaluation. It introduces students to the performance objectives for program adoption, implementation and sustainability, with an emphasis on ecological approaches and systems thinking. It further develops skills for effective planning, implementation and evaluation in a variety of settings, contextualises research and up-skills students in the critical appraisal of evidence. It also addresses the often-ignored importance of formative and process evaluation in the field and demonstrates how to plan, implement and conduct complex program evaluation. Evaluation methods for program replication, dissemination and institutionalisation will be examined, as well as how evaluation evidence informs policy and practice.
