These videos, originally part of the Cochrane Learning Live webinar series, are from a two-part webinar for anyone interested in evaluating the difference you are making by coproducing, disseminating or advocating for Cochrane evidence. The videos will be especially useful for people who have knowledge translation (KT) work that they want to evaluate.
This second session provides tips to help you strengthen your evaluation plans and ideas for developing survey and interview questions. The presenters provide an example of how some Cochrane teams have collected feedback using a survey. It is strongly encouraged that participants should have listened to the first webinar in the series before attending this one.
The webinar was delivered in December 2020 and below you will find the videos from the webinar, together with accompanying slides to download [PDF].
Part 1: Recap of webinar 1
