The CJPE Book Club:

The CJPE is pleased to launch its new book club, in collaboration with CES. The purpose of the book club is to explore recent CJPE publications through a web-based presentation by one of our authors, followed by a Q&A from participants. The authors will have the opportunity to share their work and any new updates since publication, and the participants will have the opportunity to share their thoughts, comments and questions with the author. What better way to explore ground breaking evaluation research and innovative practices?

Although it is not mandatory, participants are encouraged to consult the article on the menu prior to the meeting, in order to fully benefit from the exchanges. No worries if you have not had time to read the article, its author will present a short summary.

Here is the link to read the article for the next meeting.


Webinar focus:

Program stakeholders and evaluators routinely generate and share digital photographs.

Three frameworks for using photographs in evaluation practice are discussed: documenting social change, facilitating sense-making, and inspiring and imagining social change. These are rooted in scholarship from arts-informed inquiry and visual sociology and anthropology. Using these frameworks, a review of existing literature demonstrates an extensive use of photographs for documentation and a growing use of photographs for sense-making and inspiring and imagining social change in evaluation practice.

The webinar concludes with a case example of how an evaluation team used digital photographs in an evaluation of a teacher professional development program.
