H-PEA 2018 Conference Workshops

Empowerment Evaluation:  Building Evaluation Capacity and Producing Outcomes

David Fetterman

Thursday, October 4th, 9am-4pm

Empowerment evaluation is a global phenomenon,  It has been used in over 16 countries and in places ranging from corporate offices of Google and Hewlett-Packard to squatter settlements and townships in South Africa to create sustainable community health and education initiatives.  Empowerment evaluation is designed to build evaluation capacity, cultivate ownership, and produce outcomes. This workshop will highlight theories, concepts, and principles guiding the approach.  In addition, the workshop will be highly interactive.  During the workshop, participants will gain experience conducting a 3-step approach to empowerment evaluation.  Technological tools, ranging from online surveys to videoconferencing and infographic software will be discussed.
