Diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death in Australia, and contributes to significant illness and disability. The estimated $3 billion spent in Australia annually on diabetes health care costs, represents only part of the toll for the one million Australians with diabetes. The number of new cases diagnosed each year is expected to rise due to an overweight and aging population (Australian Institute of Health and Welfare 2002). Sedentary lifestyles, overweight, obesity and poor nutrition put many people unnecessary at risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes. Lifestyle changes supported by health-enhancing environments can decrease the risk, reverse pre-diabetic conditions and prevent or delay the onset of Type 2 Diabetes.

The same survey from the formative evaluation will then be given to all employees in the impact evaluation three months after the Work Well Workshop. This allows the evaluator to appropriately identify any change that has occurred as a result of the Work Well Project. All questions in the survey will relate closely to the Project objectives. The survey will ask the following example questions to assess increased knowledge, awareness and change in behaviours- * How regularly do you exercise? * What is your daily fat intake? * How many serves of vegetable to you eat daily? * Is Type 2 Diabetes preventable? * What are the benefits of exercise? * Are you able to exercise for at least 30 minutes three times per week? * Are you susceptible to developing Type 2 Diabetes? The survey will be multiple-choice with an "other" option and space to answer in their own words, for those that feel the multiple choice options don't correspond to them. A multiple-choice survey was chosen so the survey would be quick and easy for the employees to fill out, thus reducing some of the barriers to participating in the evaluation. In order to obtain the most accurate attendance figure, opinions of the participants and facilitators and quality of the Work Well Workshop a process evaluation survey will be filled in directly after the last session of the Workshop. ...read more.

Conclusion

Secondly, the trainee teachers' classes will also be observed in order to identify the transformation of content knowledge into pedagogical content knowledge. Document and artefacts analysis. Documents related to training programme will be analysed focusing whether they are planned and executed consistently. Specifically, the need assessment report, training manuals and any other documents will be taken into account to analyse the process of evaluation. The document analysis helps identify the programme-related information and its focus on implementation. Furthermore, the autobiographies written by the teacher trainer and student teacher will also be analysed in order to portray the effect of the training programme. Conference with the stakeholders. A conference will be organized including the representatives of prospective stakeholders except the students. This conference will help to identify a shared interpretation of the programme and its focus. Beyond the identified techniques of data collection, the searching of other basis for data collection will be open. The regular visit of the sites (training venue, cooperative and demonstration schools) and continuous discussion with the stakeholders will help identify the other sources of data collection. 2.7 Ethical Considerations As employees are the main sources of data, a written contract for protecting privacy will be prepared for each of the employees. Right of anonymity of each employee will be respected. For this, pseudonym of each employee (if essential) will be used in the process of analysing the data. The data will be kept confidential and will not be transferred to any other agencies. 3. ...read more.
