  2. Week 11: BetterEvaluation at AfrEA 2014

    BetterEvaluation was privileged to sponsor the Methodological Innovation stream at the African Evaluation Association (AfREA) conference from 3-7 March. What did we learn?

    • What kinds of innovation are needed to address unmet challenges?  
    • How do we support effective innovation - in terms of both inventing and adopting new methods and processes?

    All too often conferences fail to make good use of the experience and knowledge of people attending, with most time spent presenting prepared material that could be better delivered other ways, and not enough time spent on discussions and active learning.  With closing dates for two evaluation conferences fast approaching (the Australasian Evaluation Society and the American Evaluation Association), could you propose something more useful, that would demonstrate how much we know and care about communicating and using information?
