Event description

Description

Course content

How can you be sure your policy or program has been successful if you don’t effectively evaluate it?

Join us and learn how to design evaluations that will provide you with evidence on the success (or potential learnings) of your policy or program, throughout its life-cycle.

We will take a behavioural insights approach that considers useful principles for collecting evidence and evaluating your behavioural interventions. You’ll be able to apply these principles to the evaluation of programs and services more broadly.

This workshop explains why it’s so important to consider the design of program evaluations upfront to ensure appropriate data is collected.

This advanced course focuses on quantitative evaluation methodologies and on increasing participants’ understanding of:

• The importance of testing and building evidence
• Basic quantitative methods of evaluation and how Randomised Controlled Trials can support evidence informed policy making
• What’s required to conduct a robust evaluation of policy


Who is this for
This course is suitable for all members of the VPS (recommended for VPS4-6) with some prior knowledge of how evaluation can build evidence informed policies and programs.


Participants are required to bring a laptop with them to this workshop


Course facilitators
The Melbourne Institute will facilitate this workshop.
