In Search Of The Holy Grail … “Evaluating for Impact”
Thu, April 16, 2015; 11:45 - 13:00
Location: SBS, Seminar 4
Impact is the goal for social entrepreneurs and researchers alike. Yet, despite the proliferation of programs aimed at addressing large-scale social problems, there is very little high-quality evidence of their effectiveness. In this session Professor Paul Montgomery, a leading methodologist in Complex Social Interventions, will give an informal introductory workshop on methods for evaluating “impact”. This will be followed by an open discussion on barriers and opportunities for making quality evaluation research the domain of all practitioners.
