Supporting the use of evaluation findings

Patricia Rogers and Jane Davidson's picture 3rd November 2017 by Patricia Rogers and Jane Davidson

In this flipped conference session, we invite participants and evaluators, evaluation managers and evaluation capacity developers around the world to build and share knowledge about what can be done to support the use of evaluation findings after they've been reported.

Together we will explore these questions:

Q1. What are the different options for supporting the use of evaluation findings once reporting has been done?

Scaffolding new methods

We have all been there. You dive into a new book or head to a conference/workshop/course and come out all fired up about a new evaluation method. But when you get back to the real world, applying it turns out to be harder than you thought! What next?  

What are some options and processes to help stakeholders articulate how they think a program works? (AES17 co-creation challenge #1)

The material from BetterEvaluation comes from a combination of curating existing material and co-creating new material.  This blog is part of an ongoing series about material that we have co-created with BetterEvaluation users. It shares material that was jointly developed through a challenge process at the 2017 Australasian Evaluation Society conference in Canberra in September.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to this co-creation challenge!

BetterEvaluation members at AES17

There are so many good presentations on at the AES this year, it can be difficult to know where to start. To help, we've used the AES 'My Sched' tool to go through and create a curated list of sessions that include at least one BetterEvaluation member as a presenter or session chair. The full list of BetterEvaluation members who are presenting is here (if we've missed you, please let us know):

2017 International Realist Conference

We've got our head in realism this week, partly because early-bird registrations for the 2017 International Realist Conference close soon (Early-bird registration deadline has been extended until Thursday, September), and partly because we've been shown Chris Lysy's realist cartoon series (commissioned by the Rameses project) which made us giggle. You can view the full series of cartoons on the Rameses website, along with a number of other great resources about realist evaluation, including Ray Pawson's video series.
