Developmental Evaluation and the Graduate Student Researcher

This presentation was delivered on February 22, 2012 as part of the EGSS ScholarShare series.

This presentation introduces the discipline of program evaluation and offers a glimpse to how developmental evaluation responds to the call of providing an evaluation approach to working in complex contexts, such as social innovation. I conclude by introducing the notion of design and design thinking as a way of approaching problems we face in today’s complex world.

I discuss, briefly, some of the strategies I employed to manage my own thesis research as a graduate student researcher in education.
