What are some ways to evaluate training workshops (or any other type conference, meeting, or event)?

An Expectation Board or an Audience Response System are both effective ways to evaluate an event.

An Expectation Board is an interactive technique to evaluate a workshop, conference, meeting, or event. With an Expectation Board, participants are asked at the beginning of the event to write their expectations for the event on cards and tape them onto an Expectation Board. Throughout the event, participants assess whether their stated expectations are being met. Learn more about this interactive technique.

An Audience Response System is another interactive technique to evaluate a workshop, conference, meeting, or event. Using an online tool, such as Poll Everywhere, trainers can ask participants a question and participants can respond using the Internet on their mobile phone, tablet, or laptop. The tool automatically displays the results from the group in real-time through visual charts, for all participants to view and discuss. Learn more about this interactive technique.
