During the course of the day we will break down ‘big project outcomes’, set performance indicators and create measurement and evaluation tools by using established evaluation frameworks – the Arts Council England (ACE) Quality Framework, National Lottery Heritage Fund (NLHF) outcomes and the New Economics Foundation’s Wellbeing Framework. We will also look at the different stages at which evaluation can take place: formative, delivery and assessment, summative and longitudinal.
By the end of the workshop, participants should have created an outline evaluation framework, and understand how to develop tools, a question bank and a report template to use on their own projects, or to form the basis of future research.
Participants are welcome to bring live projects to the session, so that we can use them as examples during the day.
