CE3: Designing for Effectiveness


Assignment: Complete Part I – II as a team in your assigned breakout room. Part III is to be completed individually by each student prior to submitting the assignment on canvas.

** If you missed this session you must complete each section individually.

Part I: Logic Model exercise with Guest Speaker: Given the Goal and Problem statement, please complete the logic model components (resources, activities, outputs, and outcomes) shown below:

Goal: UC San Diego would like to launch a new social media campaign focused on physical activity and sedentary behavior. The goal of this campaign is to increase motivation, knowledge, and self-efficacy surrounding physical activity, while reducing sedentary behavior among UC San Diego students.

Problem Statement: The 2019 National College Health Assessment (NCHA) revealed that only 46% of UC San Diego students are meeting the Health & Human Services’ recommendation for moderate-intensity (150 minutes) and vigorous-intensity (75 minutes) exercise. It can be postulated that this percentage has likely decreased since 2019 as a result of COVID-19, which has required UCSD to transition to remote learning. Due to the nature of remote learning, it is likely that screen time has increased while physical activity has decreased as students are no longer walking from class to class, riding bikes across campus, etc.
