A new webinar, “CJPE Book Club: Expanding the Role of Digital Photographs in Evaluation Practice: Documenting, Sense-Making, and Imagining” is now available for free for CES members and non-members! It can be found on the CJPE Book Club Webinars section of the website.
In this webinar, Dr. Leanne Kallemeyn explores 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 concluded with a case example of how an evaluation team used digital photographs in an evaluation of a teacher professional development program.
