ARTD is looking forward to discussing how to make evaluation a more useful and effective governance tool with other members of the Australian Evaluation Society (AES) next week at the aes17 International Conference in Canberra.
ARTD is again a sponsor of the event, which runs next week 4-6 September at the National Convention Centre. This year we’re sponsoring keynote speaker Sandra Mathison, who will examine whether evaluation contributes to the public good. For more information about the conference head to: http://conference2017.aes.asn.au/.
This year, two of ARTD’s directors are also presenting.
Andrew Hawkins’ presentation ‘Intervention: putting the logic back into logic models’ (Tuesday 5 Sep, 9.30am, Murray Room) will examine the shortcomings of logic models and challenge practitioners to better explain causal mechanisms. Click here for more information on Andrew’s presentation.
Jade Maloney’s presentation ‘Evaluation: what’s the use?’ (Tuesday 5 Sep, 3pm, Torrens Room) will highlight findings from her new research, which examines the problem of non-use and how practitioners can ensure their evaluations don’t end up gathering dust on a shelf.

If you are at the conference, please come and speak to one of our senior staff.
