  1. Pathways to professionalisation- Part 2: Options for professionalisation

    Blog
    20th July, 2018

    In the previous blog in this series, Greet Peersman and Patricia Rogers introduced the ‘Pathways to advance professionalisation within the context of the AES’ project and report. 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, and the conclusion of this two-part series looks at these approaches in more detail. We believe these activities are likely to be of considerable interest to others who are undertaking or planning evaluation capacity strengthening activities and we encourage you to share your feedback and thoughts on these activities at the end of this blog.

  2. Evaluation Toolkit- Autumn Intensive 2019

    Event
    Workshop
    20th May, 2019 to 22nd May, 2019
    Australia
    Paid

    This 3-day program offers a range of full day workshops including evaluation basics and theories, reporting, program logic, and essentials for qualitative and quantitative methods.

  3. I'm doing an impact evaluation: What evidence do I need? (#AES17 presentation slides)

    Resource
    Overview
    2017

    Are quantitative or qualitative methods better for undertaking impact evaluations? What about true experiments? Is contribution analysis the new 'state of the art' in impact evaluation or should I just do a survey and use statistical methods to create comparison groups?

    Determining one's plan for an impact evaluation occurs within the constraints of a specific context. Since method choices must always be context specific, debates in the professional literature about impact methods can at best only provide partial guidance to evaluation practitioners. The way to break out of this methods impasse is by focusing on the evidentiary requirements for assessing casual impacts.

  4. AES Workshop: Theory based approaches for complex systems

    Event
    Workshop
    11th April, 2018 to 12th April, 2018
    Australia
    Paid

    This workshop is designed to enable participants to understand and explore theory based approaches to evaluation of complex programs, and/or programs in complex contexts.

  5. AES Workshop: Introduction to Program Logic

    Event
    Workshop
    6th February, 2017
    Australia
    Paid

    Program logic is a simplified model of expected cause-and-effect relationships between activities, immediate changes, intermediate outcomes and final outcomes. This workshop introduces the program logic concept and lays out a step by step process for creating a logic model. The workshop concludes with an overview of how this logic model can be used for program design and to be the spine of a monitoring, evaluation, reporting and improvement framework.

  6. AES International Evaluation Conference 2018

    Event
    Conference
    19th September, 2018 to 21st September, 2018
    Australia
    Paid

    The Australasian Evaluation Society (AES)'s 2018 conference theme is: Transformations. Evaluation has never been more exciting, yet challenging. Our context is changing at a dizzying rate. The AES invites you to join them in Launceston, Tasmania, to explore the changing context of evaluation and what it might mean for you and the areas in which you work.

  7. Designing and Implementing a Monitoring and Evaluation System workshop (30 Jul, 31 Jul, 1 Aug, 2 Aug 2018 Sydney)

    Event
    Workshop
    30th July, 2018 to 2nd August, 2018
    Australia
    Paid

    This workshop draws on the text book ‘Developing Monitoring and Evaluation Frameworks’ (SAGE, 2016) authored by Anne Markiewicz and Ian Patrick. It presents a clear and staged conceptual model for the systematic development and implementation of an M&E System. The workshop has been developed with four separate, but inter-related components, with one presented each day. People can choose to participate in the full program or part of the program dependent upon their experience and needs.

  8. What would an evaluation conference look like if it was run by people who know and care about presenting information to support use? (hint- that should be us)

    Blog
    2nd March, 2017

    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?

  9. AES Workshop: Performance Story Reports

    Event
    Workshop
    23rd March, 2017
    Australia
    Paid

    Performance story reports aim to strike a good balance between depth of information and brevity. They aim to be written in accessible language and help build a credible case about the contribution a program has made towards outcomes or targets. They help teams and organisations to focus on results and also provide a common language for discussing different programs. This workshop will explore different approaches to performance story, and how performance story reports are developed. It will outline steps to building a report and explore the role of program logic and evidence in developing the report. It will be an interactive and engaging workshop involving case studies and group process.

  10. BetterEvaluation is going to AES17- Come say hello!

    We're thrilled to be able to join the Australasian Evaluation Society at their 2017 International Conference in Canberra. We'll have a booth set up in the conference exhibition area and we'd love you to come say hello and join in the fun as we use our time at the AES to work with our members, website users, and the wider evaluation community to co-create and share knowledge about evaluation.
