As one of its priority tasks, courses in evaluation professional development are organised directly by the SEVAL. The first in the series was held in autumn 2003 and was jointly organized with the University of Fribourg, Continuing Education Department.
The general format for SEVAL’s professional development courses is:
- 1 2-day course per year aimed at examining the different models / approaches that can be used to respond to evaluation needs (such as Realistic Evaluation, Theory-Driven Evaluation, Democratic Evaluation, etc)
- ad hoc courses on a topical subject such as “Evidence: what constitutes evidence and what means are available for putting it together.”
- The next course will be held in Fribourg, March 10-11, 2005 on the theme "Theory-Driven Evaluation: An antidote to "black-box evaluation?" For program details and registration, please click here for details. Registration can be made on line at www.unifr.ch/formcont
Teaching Methods : courses are designed to be interactive. Methods include presentations, group work, case studies, discussions, etc. Some preliminary reading will also be needed to obtain the most out of the courses.
Course Language : As international specialists will be invited to lead the evaluation approach/models course, participants will need to have a good understanding of written and spoken English, German and French.
