Whose reality counts in evaluation? Building forward better with people-centered and adaptive evaluations
This gLOCAL event draws on two key and interrelated topics that emerged over the last year in the knowledge sharing among members of the EvalForward Community of Practice: 1) Use of community feedback for adaptive programming, and 2) Methods for enabling community participation and feedback in times of COVID.
In discussing these two topics, the event will focus in particular on examples of some ways in which adaptive programming and inclusive evaluations have been undertaken. Participants will also be able to share and put forward their perspectives and experiences, in interactive sessions which will provide a forum for exchange of experiences and will be moderated by experienced development professionals.
The event will take place on 2nd June, 3:00pm-4:30pm CEST /1:00pm GMT
