Outcomes and Assessment Webinar

Learn how to use the Public Library Association's Project Outcomes initiative in developing computational thinking learning goals and see how one library developed a logic model to assist in planning, implementing, and evaluating a summer coding camp.

In this webinar from the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA), Samantha Lopez from the Public Library Association Project Outcome initiative gives library staff advice on how to develop outcomes to determine how successful library activitites are - including coding and computational thinking activities. Jason Gonzales from the Muskogee, OK, Public Library explains how and why logic models can be helpful when planning and assessing library computational thinking and coding activities.
