    Essential Skills Series: Program Evaluation

    The Essential Skills Series is a four-day workshop that equips participants to enter and participate in the evaluation field. Graduates will be able to describe core evaluation concepts and techniques, from the planning process to standards through methods for data collection and analysis. Using case studies and other adult learning methods, participants will develop knowledge and skills in planning and conducting evaluations. While evaluation experience is not a prerequisite, participants would benefit from knowledge in a related field such as program planning/management, or social science research.

    Designed by the Canadian Evaluation Society, the Essential Skills Series covers a full range of evaluation topics at an introductory level.

     Topics Covered:

    • Foundations of evaluation
    • Evaluation objectives and roles
    • Program profiling
    • Evaluation questions
    • Evaluation indicators
    • Common research methods
    • Evaluation design
    • Data collection
    • Data management and analysis
    • Synthesizing evidence
    • Communicating evaluation findings

    Information for Presenters 

    Evaluation practice is rapidly evolving and new tools and methods are constantly emerging.  What’s a busy evaluator to do? Come learn from your peers!

    The 2020 CESBC Evaluation Conference is being held in Vancouver, BC, on Friday, January 24, 20210. This conference is about opening up our evaluation toolboxes and sharing with each other what we know and what we’ve learned. The goal is for every attendee to come away from the conference with something new to apply in their work. The conference is an opportunity to strengthen skill sets, build up your network of evaluators, and make new connections. Our focus is on building CESBC’s culture as an innovative and supportive evaluation community.

    The Conference Organizers

    The conference is brought to you by the Lower Mainland members of the BC chapter of the Canadian Evaluation Society. CESBC is a chapter of the Canadian Evaluation Society (CES), the professional organization for evaluation professionals, students, academics and users of evaluation (such as managers, program staff and planners). CESBC is a member funded voluntary organization. We work to provide the evaluation community in British Columbia with learning opportunities, networking and resources. We are happy to take advice and organize events that the community suggests.

    Where: TBD

    When: Friday, January 24 2020

    Time: Registration: 8:15am, Conference: 9:15am to 4:20pm
