This poster describes the program implementation of a Supplemental Nutrition
Assistance Program-Education (SNAP-Ed) in Extension. The presentation will
focus on planning strategies for successful program delivery. We conducted
an Implementation Evaluation using multiple method case studies. Data
sources included interviews with facilitators and participants, observations,
and surveys. Evaluators transcribed and coded 15 interviews with SNAPEd
participants and educators to better understand what types of session
planning strategies contribute to effective implementation of health and
nutrition programs. The interviews asked whether these strategies engaged
new learners, as well as how planning contributes to classroom management
and the quality of the learning environment. While there is no one-size-fits-all
approach to great SNAP-Ed implementation, skilled session planning strategies
can be used to effectively engage learners in a low-tech, yet highly interactive
classroom. Furthermore, content adaptation during implementation was
relevant to connect participant immediate needs with program objectives/
goals. Considerations for program planning are explored.
