A methodological scan of thirty years of evaluation -- Where have we been, where are we now, and where are we going?
Thursday 16th October, 2008
5.30pm - 7.00pm
VicHealth Seminar Room, Ground Floor,

15-31 Pelham Street, Carlton South

How has evaluation developed over the past three decades? What trends, themes and changes have we witnessed; what has lasted (or not)and why, and what is emerging now?
This is the first of two seminars that are bringing this year's theme of 'a more panoramic view of evaluation' to a conclusion. The second seminar in November will focus more on where evaluation is going in future (e.g. electronic trends, the limits of control/performance in
complex systems, and the implications of climate change as
preoccupation with it ripples through business, government and the community services sector).

This October seminar will present the observations of a panel of experienced evaluators who will take the opportunity to step back and reflect on the changes they have seen, to contribute an interesting, stimulating and hopefully provocative smorgasbord of ideas. Together
we hope a bigger picture of evaluation's trajectory will emerge, enriched by audience contributions.

Presenters: Richard Elvins, David Brous, Anona Armstrong AM FAES, Anne Markiewicz, Yoland Wadsworth FAES
