Expert seminar on Developmental Evaluation with Dr. Michael Quinn Patton

Developmental evaluation is based on insights from complex dynamic systems, uncertainty, nonlinearity, and emergence. Dr. Michael Quinn Patton will discuss the developmental evaluation framework as detailed in his book 'Developmental Evaluation: Applying Complexity Concepts to Enhance Innovation and Use'. Patton will illustrate how developmental evaluation can contribute to: ongoing programme development; adapting effective principles of practice to local contexts; generating innovations and taking them to scale; and facilitating rapid response in crisis situations. Participants will discuss developmental evaluation's value for the development sector. How is this framework different from existing practice of ongoing reflective monitoring in development? What new insights can help strengthen the utility of evaluation for development?
