The evaluation team met for the first time face-to-face on the 9th and 10th May 2017 in Cardiff, in Wales. Eleni, Pedro and Sam worked for two days alongside the transnational partner meeting developing their evaluation skills and planning the project evaluation in detail. They started off by interviewing the project team to establish the purpose of the evaluation – was it about improvement and development or was it mainly inspectorial and about accountability? The answer was a bit of both but the emphasis should be on improvement and capturing lessons learned during the project. As a result, one of their first decisions was that they needed space on the website to share their ideas, post their findings and offer feedback as they became available rather than waiting until the end of the project and producing a text-based summative report.
So here is your space, guys, look forward to what you have to say!
