Evaluation provides an opportunity for critical, strategic thinking through collecting and analysing information about a program's activities, characteristics and outcomes to understand its effectiveness, and improve and inform future program delivery.
The workshop is highly participative and interactive with participants applying learning real-world programs. Participants apply evaluative practice and thinking to articulate program outcomes and to develop these into a program logic.
Participants will 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.
