Fun in Cameroon at AfrEA 2014 & The Quest for Exciting Journal Articles

March 23rd, 2014 · Comments

In this episode we present a mixed bag where Kylie debriefs her most excellent week at the African Evaluation Association 2014 conference and James takes us on his search for a "non-boring" evaluation journal article. 

Fun on the Conference Shuttle Bus

Shout outs to Serge-Eric Yakeu Djiam, Jennifer Bisgard, and all the hard-working volunteers at AfrEA2014 and the Cameroon Development Evaluation Association for a great conference.

Below are some of the articles that James found in his search:
  • American Evaluation Association Task Force Statement on ‘What is Evaluation?’ (2014)
  • Fournier, D. M. (1995). Establishing evaluative conclusions: A distinction between general and working logic. New Directions for Evaluation, 65, 15-32.
  • Patton, M. Q. (2000). Overview: Language matters. New Directions for Evaluation, 86, 5-16.
  • Gamble, J. (2006). A Developmental Evaluation Primer. Montreal, PQ: McConnell Foundation.
  • Dozois, E., Langlois, M., Blanchet-Cohen, N. (2010). DE201: A practitioner's guide to Developmental Evaluation. Montreal, PQ: McConnell Foundation.
  • Scheirer, M. A. & Schwandt, T. (2012).  Planning evaluation through the program life cycle. American Journal of Evaluation, online, 1-32.
  • Evergreen, S. & Metzner, C. (2013). Design principles for data visualization in evaluation.  New Directions in Evaluation, 140, 5-20. 
Until next time,
