WEBINAR - Insights on Work in the Evaluation Industry
In this series we hear direct from individuals about their practice of evaluation in their part of the industry. We are pleased to welcome Olha Krasovska, Senior Evaluation Specialist, North of Tyne Combined Authority (NTCA) as our speaker for this webinar.
In recent years, there has been a growing interest in establishing evidence standards, and with an increasing focus on assessing the quality of evidence for case-based or qualitative approaches to evaluation. Developing and using such standards can help to build greater confidence in qualitative evidence and help users to make sense of large volumes of data within or across projects.
This workshop provides practical guidance, underpinned by a sound theoretical framework, for evaluating VfM. It focuses on unpacking a process of explicit evaluative reasoning (using rubrics) and the use of mixed methods (qualitative, quantitative, and economic).
This workshop explores a broad set of people and facilitation skills that are needed across an evaluation - from setting up, to data gathering, managing the process, dealing with conflict, all the way through to sharing learning, to arrive at effective and useful evaluation.
