  4. Pathways to advance professionalisation within the context of the AES

    Discussion paper

    This report by Greet Peersman and Patricia Rogers for the Australasian Evaluation Society (AES) identifies four potential pathways towards professionalisation within the context of the AES: 1) Ad hoc, disconnected activities; 2) Focused, connected and strategic activities; 3) Voluntary credentialing of evaluators; and 4) Regulated and licensed profession. The main recommendation of the report is that the AES follow a pathway of focused, connected and strategic activities, with a view to considering a voluntary credentialing process down the track. A major feature of this report is the exploration of 41 activities and approaches that can be used to advance the professionalisation of monitoring and evaluation. These activities are likely to be of considerable interest to others who are undertaking or planning evaluation capacity strengthening activities.
