This October, I traveled to Denver, Colorado for the American Evaluation Association’s 2014 annual conference. In addition to enjoying Colorado sunshine, I took notes during the different sessions, panels and workshops that I attended. The set of notes below is from a presentation given by Michael Quinn Patton during the conference. With Michaels permission, I’m sharing these notes on Principles-Focused Evaluation in the hopes that it will be useful to evaluators who are interested in learning more about how to incorporate principles-based thinking into their evaluation frameworks.
If you are interested, Michael has recently published a new book that makes for the perfect holiday gift and/or heavy weight to lift in order to get shape for the holidays (Michael’s joke).
You can download the full version of the notes here.
