Workshop outline

Monitoring and evaluation is integral to good community development and not something that should be left only to an outsider or an ‘expert’. When done properly, evaluation facilitates an ongoing process of learning among all involved in group and community development projects. It also enables the continual development of projects and programs to be more effective and successful. This two-day workshop will introduce the central concepts of community development evaluation with refugee communities.

Workshop program

  • Setting Project Goal, Objectives and Activities
  • Clarifying Evaluation Purpose and Scope
  • Defining Evaluation Questions
  • Identifying the Information We Need
  • Deciding on Data Collection Methods
  • Using the Data

Target group

Suitable for community workers and social workers wishing to develop professional skills in community development with refugee communities in Australia. Participants will need to have an existing understanding of basic community development principles.
