Joys & Pitfalls of Conducting Program Evaluations in the Arts & Culture Sector
Program evaluation is a multidisciplinary, rapidly expanding, global field. Guest speakers from a variety of disciplines have been invited to the University of North Carolina, Wilmington (UNCW) to host events that will broaden student understanding of how evaluation is applied in diverse, real-world contexts.
Alison has been invited to speak with graduate students enrolled in UNCW's evaluation program. She will explore the critical elements for sound program evaluation in the arts and culture sector, particularly as it relates to data analysis and reporting. By describing lessons learned along the way, Alison will highlight the importance of a holistic methodology that informs future planning, documents impact, advocates for needs, and creates policy change.
