The subject is based on an assumption that leaders and managers need timely, systematic information for use in decision-making about programs (and policies) for which they are responsible. The focus is on internal evaluations within organisations (for example schools, government agencies and businesses) which have adopted a learning organisation focus. Students are exposed to program planning techniques such as program logic/ and evaluability assessment. Other topics include evaluative techniques to develop and improve programs. These include needs assessment; translation of search conferences into local action; development of policy from innovative practice; and various approaches to implementation including action research and empowerment evaluation. Students are exposed to a range of data management approaches and reporting, via case studies used during class sessions.
Undertake and critique a small-scale evaluation based on an evaluation form, or carry out a critique of an approach or method presented in the course (8,000 words, 100 per cent).
This subject is not available as a breadth subject.
