I am at the European Evaluation Society conference in Helsinki and I attended the gender and evaluation session to learn more about approaches and practices. The two presenters (Dr Julia Espinosa and Dr Donna Podems) generated good discussions on evaluating gender and development projects, evaluating projects with a gender component, or using feminist evaluation approach when evaluating a project.

“Evaluation in the networked society” is the theme for the European Evaluation Society‘s 10th Biennial Conference, being held this week in Helsinki. The conference will explore the implications of the new information environment and the advent of social networking without borders for evaluation. We’re excited to have the chance to explore these issues, which are at the heart of the BetterEvaluation project.

It was great to have so many people participate in the BetterEvaluation mini-workshop at the conference of the Australasian Evaluation Society last week.

The workshop worked through two different scenarios, exploring the different options that might be used, and how the interactive BetterEvaluation website could help someone to choose an appropriate option and to use it effectively (or manage someone using it).
