An Institute of Advanced Studies Short Course Professor Peter W.B. Phillips,Johnson-Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy, University of Saskatchewan.

In a time of fiscal restraint and economic slowdown, governments around the world are looking to technological innovation as one solution to their problems. National and regional governments in Australia, Canada, the EU and US have all targeted a portion of their stimulus efforts to sustain or accelerate investments in new technologies. The difficulty has been deciding how much to invest, where to invest and what specific applications should be supported. Traditional evaluation tools offer partial answers at best.

This Short Course is designed for both practitioners and researchers interested in policy, program and project evaluation. The course will be grounded in the evaluation literature in the policy field, to set objective goals for the evaluation process. The course will then examine the choices and decision criteria for both ex ante and ex post evaluations. Participants from university researchers, postgraduate students (including honours) as well as from industry, government and NGOs are encouraged to attend. Over the course of the day participants will be encouraged to test their own interests (e.g. specific policies, programs or projects) against the various evaluation theories to determine which method(s) would offer the greatest insight.
