This is a free seminar organised by the WA branch of the AES. Our seminar series provides an opportunity for you to meet with AES members and others in Western Australia and to share and learn from the experiences of fellow evaluators. Members are encouraged to bring along colleagues with an interest in the topic even if they are not yet members of the AES. Please pass this onto your colleagues and networks.
Panel members will provide a brief outline of the key evaluation aspects they consider when determining their judgement on a program, this will also cover issues such as what’s working well and challenges. This will be followed by an interactive group discussion on supporting and challenging factors in addressing these issues and questions to the panel. It’s your chance to hear from, and exchange views with, the Departments that may have some high level oversight on evaluations of government funded programs.
Kylie Dalling has been involved in the Program Evaluation team at Treasury for several years and supports improved evaluation practices for government funded programs.
