The conference theme 'Unleashing the power of evaluation' aims to recognise the diversity of interest in and conributions to better evaluation and will challenge delegates to:

  • go beyond evaluation for accountability
  • showcase evaluation as an agent of transformation and learning
  • explore the challenges and the competencies that position evaluation as transformative
  • unpack the interplay of social, cultural and technical dynamics especially as is relevant in Indigenous spaces
  • share how evaluation can strengthen organisations, local communities as well as be a vehicle to share knowledge and practices across cultures
  • rethink and reassess our theoretical frameworks
  • consider how we extend the accessibility of evaluative practice and knowledge.

There are more than 100 high quality papers, presentations and workshops across a diverse range of interests and contexts on offer - see draft program here.
