On October 1st, we'll run a pre-conference professional development workshop with the title "How to deal with 'mission impossible' evaluations".
The workshop is designed to enhance participants’ skills and knowledge in
- Identifying pitfalls in evaluation terms of reference (TOR), so that evaluators can
- Make well-founded choices with regard to submitting an offer/expression of interest (or decide it is not worth the effort),
- Develop robust proposals for evaluations, especially of programs and project portfolios, and
- Communicate the proposals effectively to the (potential) client. We will use concrete examples from real evaluations and distil learning from participants’ experience, to develop a framework that can guide participants in making the best of sometimes confusing, over-ambitious or excessively laconic TOR.
You can register for the workshop here. In case you experience any technical issues in the registration process, there are e-mail addresses of the conference secretariat who can help you.
We hope to see you in Thessaloniki!
