Dr Argyrous and Professor Rogers will help you understand the conceptual and practical issues involved in evaluating public sector policies and programs, and evaluation’s role as a key tool for decision-makers.
“Governments now require greater scrutiny and assessment of public sector programs to determine whether they’re working,” Professor Rogers says. “Evaluation is integral to decision-making – not an afterthought.”
Robust and timely evaluations can be challenging to get right.
You will learn to focus evaluation studies according to specific criteria such as purpose and stakeholder needs. You will understand how to apply program logic, how to set standards for evaluations to then assess the quality of evaluation reports.
Evaluation for the public sector will be valuable for people in policy, program and service delivery roles who plan and conduct evaluations, assess the quality of evaluation reports, and manage others who conduct evaluation studies.
Previous participants have described this as an excellent course with a good balance of academic rigour and practical ‘how-to’ for the work environment.
Over two days, Dr Argyrous and Professor Rogers will guide you through interactive discussion using real-world public sector examples, including material from contemporary local situations.
