The module builds on the Evaluation Methods, Principles and Practice module, in providing a wide-ranging examination of contemporary evaluation techniques.
This module explores advanced, complex and creative approaches to evaluation, in order to support rigorous and robust evaluations of more intricate contexts and initiatives. Its approach balances pragmatic and practical skills for executing evaluations, with the theories which underpin their success, and enhance their impact.
On successful completion, you will be able to:
- Critically identify appropriate contexts for advanced evaluation methodologies;
- Demonstrate a critical understanding of a range of advanced and creative approaches to evaluation, and identify specific contexts for their effectiveness;
- Critically discuss the in-depth ways in which rigour and effectiveness can be constructed and defended in a complex evaluation context.
