We’re super excited at Miles Morgan to have been invited to present at the Australasian Evaluation Society’s 2017 International Evaluation Conference, held in Canberra. The theme for the conference this year was “Evaluation Capital”.
The conference theme was two-fold:
Firstly, evaluation is a durable asset for sound governance. That is, longevity and permanence should be built into our evaluation systems because societies with more evaluation capital are better off than those with less.
The second idea concerns the inherently political nature of evaluation, and that evaluation commissioners and practitioners must be sensitive to the effect of politics when making their evaluative choices. (AES 2017)
Our senior consultants, Catherine Manley and Naysa Brasil Teodoro, presented the seminar workshop: Future of evaluation: a collaborative introduction to scenario thinking. The presentation drew on Miles Morgan’s recently published work Future skills and training resource, which was developed for the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC). The interactive session generated much interest and discussion about professionalisation, interdisciplinary working and making use of new technology and data opportunities.
Thanks to the AES for the photos of our team at the event.
