This is a hands-on, two-hour workshop in program evaluation specially
designed for Science Communicators.

In this workshop, Larraine draws on her many years experience as an
evaluator and educationist to give you an insight into evaluation theory and
practice. She does this with examples from her projects relevant to Science
Communicators. These have included working with Questacon Outreach, CSIRO
Education and the Australian Sustainable Schools Initiative. As Larraine
says, ‘… it’s hard to make evaluation fun’, but with her action learning
approach, you’ll have an experience that is practical and engaging. Come
prepared to work on your own program area to develop a draft evaluation
plan. You will also receive a workbook which includes detailed notes.

By the end of the session you will have a basic understanding of:

   - What program evaluation is and its relationship to research.
   - The different types of program evaluation and when you would use them:
   Design, Process, Impact, and Economic Evaluations.
   - Typical steps in planning, implementing and reporting an evaluation,
   including: engaging and working with consultants; scoping the terms of
   reference for an evaluation; identifying the key evaluation questions.
   - Typical tools used in evaluations such as: Program Logic; Data Matrix;
   qualitative and quantitative data collection strategies; Appreciative
   Enquiry; Most Significant Change; Participatory and Empowerment evaluation.
   - How to develop a monitoring and evaluation plan.
