Practising change together – towards appreciative and collaborative evaluation
This workshop develops the ideas and themes from the FSF2018 event “Reigniting Evaluation” and contributes to discussions about the need to create cultures of embedded learning and evaluation, so that evidence about ‘what works’ really does get used well by funders and commissioners of services, practitioners, citizens and communities.
The focus of this workshop will be on the practicalities of how to do this. It will use a series of symbolic statements or provocations to stretch, challenge and encourage innovation and show how they could be a practical tool. This could help any group that seeks to establish a bespoke set of values and principles of how they wish to work together and how they wish to judge the quality of their work.
This event is likely to appeal to anyone with an interest in how to create better public services, whether or not you attend the event last year. Facilitated by Cathy Sharp, Research for Real and Keira Oliver, Scottish Government.
