Different design approaches, such as design thinking, human centred design and co-design, have become more and more popular over the last ten years as a means of addressing complex problems. These approaches are underpinned by an emphasis on understanding and incorporating the ‘human’ that experiences problems or issues first hand. With the use of different design approaches increasing across society, there is a need for clarity over what these design approaches are, what they mean for staff who design and deliver programs that draw on such approaches.
Similarly, evaluation is a key aspect of project and program delivery, and yet it is often left to the end or is an afterthought. In some ways this occurs because of a lack of familiarity with when and how to embed evaluation into programs. Ultimately, good evaluation practice starts during the design process and provides a way to continuously improve and demonstrate impact.
This unique two-day workshop brings together the worlds of design and evaluation to provide participants with the opportunity to increase their knowledge and skills in program design and evaluation.
Delivered in collaboration with White Light Education.

Social network analysis (SNA) is a particularly useful approach for capturing the structure and interactions of the networks and connections that exist between individuals, groups and organisations. SNA provides a framework for collecting and analysing data and displaying it through network maps.

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.
