A Celebration of Failure: Learning from Program Design and Evaluation

Learning is often the goal of evaluation. Ironically, we may learn more from failure than from success. In fact, program design strives to “fail early and often” as new ideas are iteratively prototyped, evaluated, and refined. In this presentation, we will examine societal expectations about program failure and consider the most common ways that programs fail. I will suggest that “strategic failure” is the key to learning, and I will outline how it can be achieved by integrating program evaluation and program design.

Evaluering i et narrativt perspektiv

Hanne Fredslund

Evaluering handler over en bred kam om at vurdere en indsats, der er sat i gang.
På gå-hjem-mødet præsenteres en model for, hvordan indsatser kan blive vurderet eller evalueret i et narrativt perspektiv. Afsættet for narrativ evaluering er de konkrete fortællinger om indsatsen frem for generelle vurderinger af den.

Formålet med at anvende narrativ evaluering er at skabe de bedst mulige betingelser for det videre arbejde med at udvikle den indsats, der evalueres. På gå-hjem-mødet gives en smagsprøve på, hvordan metoder og begreber fra den narrative terapi kan understøtte dette formål.
