Evaluation is an opportunity for critical, strategic thinking; peer review and logical enquiry and reasoning; and a means of building organisational responsiveness to stakeholders.
This one-day workshop is designed to provide participants with applied knowledge and skills to develop evaluation frameworks for a variety of purposes within their work. The workshop will be highly participative and interactive with participant’s applying learning to two current programs. Using the Program Logic model, participants will apply evaluative practice and thinking and learn how to analyse the assumptions and values underpinning the expectations of the program outcomes. They will also determine the appropriate evaluative approach for the purpose of tracking progress, making judgements and decisions, building understanding, improving effectiveness and using evidence in program design and reporting. Participants will draw on their own work case studies connected to organisational strategic goals to build their own learning and capacity.
