Description : This workshop will provide an opportunity to learn how to use a system approach when designing and conducting evaluation. The presentation will be practical. It is intended to give participants a hands-on ability to make pragmatic choices about developing and doing evaluation. Topics covered will be: 1) What do systems “look like” in terms of form and structure? 2) How do systems behave? 3) How can systems be used to develop program theory, as a methodology, and as a framework for data interpretation? 4) How should a systems approach be used along different parts of an evaluation life cycle – from initial design to reporting? The workshop will be built around real evaluation cases. Participants will be expected to work in groups to apply the material that will be presented.
