Join Brian, Carolyn, and special guest Kim van der Woerd (Reciprocal Consulting) as we wander into the complex and intriguing world of principles-focused evaluation. Will our paradigms be shifted? Will our hearts be centered? Will we remember all the stuff that Michael Quinn Patton tried to instil in us from all the workshops and books and conference presentations?* Let’s hope! Tune in and find out what we have to say about how we can use storytelling, whether program logic models can be redeemed, and how we’re trying to overcome barriers to using principles-focused evaluation in our work.
*Michael, this is some great free data for you on your training outcomes. You’re welcome! I think we mostly got it, but we’ll link to some resources in the show notes so people can fact-check us.
