The CJPE Book Club:

The CJPE is pleased to have launched its book club, in collaboration with CES. The purpose of the book club is to explore recent CJPE publications through a web-based presentation by one of our authors, followed by a Q&A from participants. The authors have the opportunity to share their work and any new updates since publication, and the participants will have the opportunity to share their thoughts, comments and questions with the author. What better way to explore ground breaking evaluation research and innovative practices?

Although it is not mandatory, participants are encouraged to consult the article on the menu prior to the meeting, in order to fully benefit from the exchanges. No worries if you have not had time to read the article, its author will present a short summary.

Here is the link to read the article for the next meeting

Webinar focus:

This article describes findings from a scoping review of the grey literature to identify principles, approaches, methods, tools, and frameworks for conducting program evaluation in Indigenous contexts, reported from 2000–2015 in Canada, the United States, New Zealand, and Australia. It includes consultation with key informants to validate and enrich interpretation of findings. The fifteen guiding principles, and the approaches, methods, tools, and frameworks identified through this review may be used as a starting point for evaluators and communities to initiate discussion about how to conduct their evaluation in their communities, and which approaches, methods, tools, or frameworks would be contextually appropriate.
