Program Research and Evaluation
Programming is important because it is way to express information to a group of people. Programs are a method of organizing experienced people to impart some of their knowledge to a less experienced group. They are an educational resource. Understanding a program basically means understanding the tools and methods of programming and applying that understanding to a particular case-study. A program starts with specific goals that the providers intend to implement. From these goals, specialized knowledge and resources can be sought. With a basic plan, knowledge, and resources the structures of the actual program can be constructed. This is simply trying to fulfill the original goals. Outlines and syllabuses are created and participants are found. A strong program starts from clear goals, a broad base of knowledge, and utilizes its resources effectively.
