The Systems in Evaluation (Un)Conference is a loosely structured conference that emphasises the informal, emergent exchange of ideas between participants, rather than following a conventionally structured program of speakers and presenters. The event on June 21st offers participants the chance to learn and share with colleagues in an informal virtual environment. Participants can build their knowledge and skills in systems evaluation without ever leaving the office.

Many policies and programs are implemented in large systems, or expect to make changes at multiple levels of a system. Many approaches to program theory either assume that the program itself is simple, or ignore the implications of context for whether and how programs work. This two-day workshop will introduce participants to various approaches to ‘systems’, ‘complexity’ and ‘context’, and skills and strategies for working with complex systems.

Public policies are about changing systems, but conventional approaches to their evaluation have largely ignored this insight. This conference brings together researchers and policymakers from a range of sectors and disciplines. It will explore the value of systems thinking for understanding policy problems, finding policy solutions and evaluating them - with a particular focus on the implications of systems thinking for policy evaluation. The event is aimed at both academic and non-academic participants, including research users and research commissioners.
