Training of “Evaluative Thinking”, which will be held on 20 February 2018, is designed to introduce various basic concepts of high quality evaluation design and implementation. Participants will learn the concept and basic process of evaluative reasoning, which differentiates evaluation from other forms of research, and which is the foundation for all evaluation intended to answer evaluative questions that require judgement.
Participants will have the opportunity to learn and apply approaches that have been developed by SOLIDARITAS and Clear Horizon (Australia) over several years. The training is interactive, with participants working in small groups to understand and apply the concepts that are introduced.
