I know, I’m all about the free online learning lately, but – there are so many quality resources out there to help museum professionals that I can’t restrain myself.

Shaping Outcomes, in their own words:

  • Provides an online curriculum in outcomes-based planning and evaluation (OBPE)
  • Is designed for library and museum professionals as well as students in those fields
  • Teaches the concepts and vocabulary of outcomes-based planning and evaluation (OBPE)
  • Helps participants develop the skills necessary for producing a logic model using OBPE
  • Was developed as a cooperative project between the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) and Indiana University – Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI)

Shaping Outcomes can be used as:

  • A self-paced online tutorial
  • An instructor-mediated distance learning course
  • A¬†curriculum¬†for library science and museum studies classes
  • The basis for in-person or distance learning workshops
