UKES Training on fundamentals of Evaluation London 9th May

Do you need to understand theory of change, and how to use this as part of
planning and conducting an evaluation?
Do you need to understand the range of methodological approaches to impact
evaluation including alternatives to experimental approaches?
If yes, then this one day introductory short course is for you!

Our first session will focus on using Theory of Change as an approach to develop your evaluation framework/strategy, helping you not only to provide accountability for your programme but also to inform improvements. We are coupling this with an introduction to a range of methodological developments in Impact Evaluation, introducing you to alternatives to experimental approaches.

• Part 1: Theory of change including the process of:
o developing a theory of change
o translating it into an evaluation strategy
• Part 2: Impact Evaluation including the:
o range of frameworks available to help assess causality
o range of methodological approaches to impact evaluation including alternatives to experimental and quasi experimental designs/approaches such as Process Tracing, QCA and Realist Evaluation.

It has been designed for evaluators, commissioners of evaluations or users of evaluation evidence. This session covers principles that can be applied to any discipline from international development, health and social care to the environment in the voluntary, public and private sectors.
The session will be delivered by UK Evaluation Society Council Members, Dione Hills Principal Researcher and Consultant at the Tavistock Centre and CECAN Fellow; and Stefano D’Errico Monitoring Evaluation Accountability and Learning Manager at the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED); two extremely experienced and expert evaluators and trainers.
