The AGM will include an exclusive talk by Ashraful Hasan and Steve Montague on Evaluation in the age of COVID-19.
Why people should attend:
Pandemic restrictions have profoundly affected both the subjects of evaluation (the evaluands) and the practice of doing the evaluation. Traditional evaluation approaches to program profiling (including program theories + logic models), formulating questions, designing approaches and sharing-reporting results were evolving quickly even before the pandemic. Now changes seem imperative.
What will be discussed:
Steve Montague and Ashraful Hassan – representing different generations of evaluators – will come together to share perceptions, views and possible approaches to evaluating in pandemic times and beyond. They will be sharing and provoking participant input and conversations on:
- Evaluation and its potential role + use in public policy, planning, management and operations going forward
- Key mental models to drive evaluation in these times – and how to translate them into practical approaches
- Insights on some specific promising practices and approaches
What participants should take away from the session:
Insights on the role of evaluation and evaluative thinking in areas of public management relevant to members in the National Capital Region
Exposure to some emerging (and some re-emerging) approaches, tools and techniques
Practical take-away references for immediate follow-up and use in our respective evaluation practices
