My late father would never tire of retelling stories from his Ph.D. years spent in Aachen, Germany (between late 50s and early 60s) to anyone who would listen. He would often say to my brother and me when we would complain of hearing the same story over and over again, “Tell your story in such a way that will bring joy and laughter to your listeners even if it’s the same one you told them before. There is power in the narration and the truth behind it.” My father had a knack for finding a story in everything.
Most of you know that I have a deep passion for program evaluation and have built a consulting business. I continue to look for opportunities to share my personal and professional stories and experiences from the field (with anyone who would listen).
On November 17, 2.30 to 3.30PM ET, I will be talking about these topics at a webinar being organized by the team at McAllister and Quinn:
1. World of evaluation
2. Role and importance of evaluation in grants proposal development
3. Differences between research and evaluation (related to NSF grants)
4. How and when to find an evaluator
5. Why proposals are (generally) declined (an evaluator’s perspective)
6. Tips on writing an evaluation plan and a proposal effectively.
I will share several resources too. If you have an hour or so, do plan to join me:
See you then!
