“Using Systems Theories to Improve Evaluation Practice: Promise and Pitfalls”
August 21, 2010, 12:15 pm (Pacific time)
Systems theories have been put forth as one of the latest innovations to improve evaluation practice. What are they? How can they be used to improve evaluation practice? When should they be used? When should they be avoided? What are their limitations? Is systems thinking in evaluation the latest short lived fad or a legitimate breakthrough? The answers to these questions will be discussed and debated head-to-head in Claremont.
