We may have an instinct that it’s important to engage with stakeholders on a given issue, but how do we demonstrate that what we're doing is ‘working’? How do we know we’ve chosen the right tools, and that we’re engaging the right people? How do we know we’re even asking the right questions?
Based on the premise that evaluation should always be useful, this one-day workshop includes primers on key frameworks such as formative and developmental evaluation and theory of change models. Above all, it will teach you how to employ evaluative thinking as a learning strategy, in order to strengthen your work and achieve greater impact.
You will have the opportunity to apply course material to your own work. We encourage you to have in mind an evaluation project to work on, or you may use a provided case study.
