Blogging the evaluation process
Blogging and other social media are often used as part of a communicating evaluation results – that is, once the evaluation is finished. However, blogging can also be useful to communicate the evaluation process – that is, as the evaluation is collecting data. I’ve recently been involved in a stakeholder consultation for the Joint Standards Initiative, where as part of communicating the progess of the consultation, myself and the other team members have been blogging “snapshots from the consultation” – from various and diverse locations such as Beirut, Juba and Richard Toll (Senegal).
This we found useful to provide stakeholders with an update of our work and offer some insights into our initial findings.
