Evaluation 101

This workshop will engage researchers in a rich discussion about the historic purposes of evaluation and how it has evolved and incorporated principles of equity in recent years. The session will challenge a conventional framework for evaluation and introduce meaningful ways to engage stakeholders. Participants will also be introduced to a framework and template for planning evaluation projects.
