Appropriate simplicity? Discussion tonight San Francisco

Multiple deadlines and travel have been getting in the way of either Jane or me posting on the many evaluation issues in the news at the moment. But I hope to see some Genuine Evaluation readers at tonight’s panel discussion in San Francisco, co-hosted by the San Francisco Bay Area Evaluators and The Evaluators Institute.

Mel Mark, Michael Patton and I will be discussing “Current Trends in Evaluation Use, Theory and Practice”. I want to focus on the dynamic tension between over-simplifying and over-complicating how we think about interventions and about evaluation. How do we avoid making interventions and evaluation all too hard to think about – and yet not overly simplify what is needed?

Thursday, April 7, 2011 6-8pm Embarcadero 1 (first floor) Sheraton Fisherman’s Wharf, 2500 Mason Street, San Francisco.
