The SAGE book Evaluation Failures, edited by the 2020 recipient of the CES Award for Contribution to Evaluation in Canada, Kylie Hutchinson, was released to wide acclaim in 2018. Reflection on the twenty-two stories and lessons learned comprising the book inspired independent evaluator Sandra Sellick to create tools to facilitate the application of those lessons to practice. In this webinar, Sandra will situate two protocols created for this purpose in the context of the stories told and invite participants to try out these tools in one or more simulation practice exercises. There will also be an opportunity for participants to provide feedback on the tools.
Sandra Sellick is the principal evaluator at EvaluationLink.ca and an associate faculty member for the School of Leadership Studies at Royal Roads University where she facilitates online learning for students in the Master of Arts in Leadership program. She is also an occasional reviewer of books about evaluation for the Canadian Journal of Program Evaluation. Sandra served on the CESBC Chapter Council from 2004 – 2017, including terms as the National Chapter Representative, Co-Chair of the 2010 CES Conference in Victoria, and one of three Program Co-Chairs for the 2017 CES Conference in Vancouver. While a member of the CES National Board from 2014 to 2017, she worked on two committees (Professional Learning plus Governance and Process) and represented the CES on the Joint Committee for Standards in Educational Evaluation (JCSEE).
