TNGO Director Tosca Bruno-van Vijfeijken to speak at American Evaluation Association Conference
The American Evaluation Association’s mission is to improve evaluation practices and methods, increase evaluation use, promote evaluation as a profession, and support the contribution of evaluation to the generation of theory and knowledge about effective human action. This year the Association's annual conference will be held on October 24-26 and 29th in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. The theme of the conference is Evaluation + Design.
According to the conference website, “Everything we evaluate is designed. Every evaluation we conduct is designed. Every report, graph, or figure we present is designed. In our profession, design and evaluation are woven together to support the same purpose—making the world a better place. This is the inspiration for the 2016 theme: Evaluation + Design. In 2016, we will be diving into this concept looking specifically at three areas—program design, evaluation design, and information design.”
Bruno-van Vijfeijken will present at two sessions: 1) Agency Level Measurement in INGOs (Fri Oct 28 8-9:30am); and 2) Developmental Evaluation and its utility in large organizational change processes in INGOs (Fri Oct 28 1:45-3:15).
