Description:

The course is structured to progress participants through the stages of an evaluation from conceptualisation through to negotiating the design, data collection, synthesis and reporting stages. You will be exposed to key theories and approaches to evaluation and then have the opportunity to apply these to real examples of evaluations. Examples from published studies and the grey literature, and the facilitator’s applied practice in evaluation will be drawn upon to illustrate and reinforce key concepts.

This course is designed for public sector workers and academics who are interested in commissioning, managing or conducting evaluations of public policy or programs.
