The CJPE Book Club:

The CJPE is pleased to have launched its 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 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:

This article presents the translation and cultural adaptation, into Canadian English, of the Outil diagnostique de l’action en partenariat, a tool widely used to support the practice of partnerships since its creation in French, in Quebec, in 2008. The theoretical foundations and properties of the original tool are presented, followed by a summary of methodological guidelines and a description of the process and results. The methodology involved an expert committee to formulate the English tool and verify its equivalence with the original, and a pretest with target users. Th is rigorous procedure ensures equivalence of the translated tool and its cultural adaptation to the intended users.
