HOW TO SHOW THE DIFFERENCES IN RESEARCH & EVALUATION
I have experienced the challenge of distinguishing myself as an evaluator from a researcher. I have begun to wonder how useful making distinctions between the two roles are. My conclusion: VERY USEFUL.
Recently, I have been working with several academic institution related-affiliated researchers. They are smart, they are thoughtful, they are awesome....and....they think in a completely different way than I do.
As we work together, the difference between research and evaluation becomes more tangible for me. Inspired by these interactions, I started to develop my own thinking of how to clearly communicate these differences to others.
So behold... inspired by John Lavelle's Hourglass... Phase One!

A true lover of evaluation and the potential it has to change the world.
