This workshop will introduce SNA to attendees as an evaluative technique, the theory that underpins it and the ways it is implemented. This is an introductory level workshop with no prior knowledge needed. The skills learned here will be useful for a range of responsibilities - from evaluation or program design through to stakeholder engagement.

Introduction to Design & Evaluation
Duration: 2 and a half days
Time: 9:00am - 5:00pm both days
Location: Melbourne CBD (exact location TBC)
'There's more and more talk around the design of projects, programs and services. What's the best way to design them? How can they be more innovative? How will they be evaluated?
The purpose of this workshop will be to merge the worlds of design and evaluation, and provide participants with the understanding and skills to draw on different design approaches to program, project and service design.
This will be complemented with an introduction to evaluation, providing participants with the understanding and skills to design and undertake their own evaluation, as well as skills in managing evaluation consultants.
In small teams, participants will work through a pre-prepared challenge over the duration of the workshop. This will provide an end-to-end experience in program design and evaluation, with opportunities for reflection and discussion on how workshop content might apply in their own organisations.
Topics that will be covered include:
This workshop will be an opportunity for those looking to strengthen their skills in program design and evaluation. We'll draw on examples from a range of sectors, and by the end you'll leave ready to apply some new tools and mindsets in your work. Consultants, government and NGO / NFP staff will be able to take what they learn and apply them in a range of contexts - from writing grant submissions to developing innovative policy solutions or different ways of working with clients.
