Evaluation is central to our work; it’s a point of reflection, a tool for improvement and a means to strengthen the impact of our work.
In this half day course, we will look at evaluation specifically in relation to music projects and programmes for children and young people. We will:
- Explore the core principles of good evaluative practice
- Introduce evaluation planning tools, including Theory of Change and outcomes frameworks
- Practice creating data gathering tools like surveys, focus group plans and observation templates
- Share ideas for creative evaluation
- Consider how to involve participants in designing evaluation plans and methods, so that it’s meaningful and useful to participants
This is for anyone who is new to evaluation or has a basic understanding, but would like new tools and methods, whether you are a freelance individual, running your own projects or working for an organisation.
This session will be facilitated by Sound Connections’ Programme Manager, Jennifer Raven and music education consultant, Abigail D’Amore.
