"Using Systems Theories to Improve Evaluation Practice: Promise and Pitfalls"
Saturday, August 21, 2010, 12:15 pm (Pacific)
The Promise of System Theories: Dr. Michael Quinn Patton and Dr. Bob Williams
The Pitfalls of System Theories: Dr. Michael Scriven and Dr. Stewart Donaldson
Systems theories have been put forth as one of the latest innovations to improve evaluation practice. What are they? How can they be used to improve evaluation practice? When should they be used? When should they be avoided? What are their limitations? Is systems thinking in evaluation the latest short lived fad or a legitimate breakthrough? The answers to these questions will be discussed and debated head-to-head in Claremont, and can be viewed live via online webcast this August.
Once again, all in the evaluation community are invited to join Claremont Graduate University online or on campus in Southern California to witness the ongoing debate about the future of evaluation practice.
This event is co-sponsored by Claremont Graduate University and the Southern California Evaluation Association.
The event will be viewable as a live webcast. Reserve your seat by visiting the debates website:
