Workshop: Unpacking Developmental Evaluation by Kate McKegg & Nan Wehipeihana – Auckland, 7 March 2018
Complex community issues require flexible and adaptive approaches to project design, implementation and evaluation. Developmental Evaluation (DE) offers a fresh approach to evaluating social innovation and community-led change. Using a set of guiding principles, rather than rules, DE is situational, contextual, culturally responsive and ethical. This insightful one day workshop to be held in Auckland, March 7th will be presented by two of the world’s leading developmental evaluation practitioners: Kate McKegg and Nan Wehipeihana.
Lunchtime seminar: “Defining and measuring wellbeing and poverty”. Child wellbeing, and issues around poverty, are right at the top of today’s political agenda. Bring your lunch and your questions to this timely seminar aimed at those with an interest in children’s wellbeing.
Co-design is an increasingly visible practice in our workplaces, where cross organisational ‘co-design teams’ come together to work alongside those from service providers as well as other community organisations and community members. What does this mean for evaluation? We invite you to attend a branch event on co-design and evaluation. Geoff Stone and Dr Penny Hagen will present for 30 minutes or so with plenty of time for questions and discussion.
