Professional Development Opportunity: Issues in Public Sector Evaluation: Fifteen Great Ideas

Dalhousie University’s School of Public Administration and the Centre for Advanced Management Education, in partnership with the Canadian Evaluation Society-Nova Scotia Chapter, invite you to attend a presentation of student issue papers– Issues in Public Sector Evaluation: Fifteen Great Ideas.

The students of the program evaluation course in the Master of Public Administration (Management) program will present their issue papers on August 13th.  There will be five panel presentations on topics such as:

  • Approaches to Evaluation
  • Defining Success in Evaluation Plans
  • Defining and Working with Causality
  • Performance Measurement and Evaluation
  • Building an Evaluation Culture

Following the presentations you are invited to continue the discussion with presenters at a reception in the students’ honour.

In the past this session has been deemed a wonderful venue for sparking discussion on evaluation issues and concerns. We encourage CES-NS members to participate by coming for all or a portion of the session and welcome anyone who has an interest in evaluation to drop by.

Time: 1:30pm- 4:30pm

Location: Kenneth C. Rowe Building, 6100 University Ave. Room 3087-3089.
