Child Welfare Evaluation Virtual Summit Series

Child Welfare Evaluation Virtual Summit Series The Children's Bureau is pleased to announce the Child Welfare Evaluation Virtual Summit Series. Here are the first titles of 17 planned sections: Cost Analysis in Program Evaluation: Parts 1 & 2.

With the cancellation of the 2013 National Child Welfare Evaluation Summit, the Children's Bureau developed a new, online venue that uses video as a way to advance the major objectives of the conference. The videos are designed to build capacity for improved evaluation, promote dialogue among evaluation stakeholders, and disseminate information on key evaluation topics. The first two videos focus on cost analysis in child welfare program evaluation. They introduce concepts and steps that can be applied by project directors and evaluators. The videos are companion pieces to the recently released publication Cost Analysis in Program Evaluation: A Guide for Child Welfare Researchers and Service Providers. Each video tackles an evaluation-related topic, and many propose solutions to common evaluation problems and direct viewers to additional tools and resources. The videos combine illustration, animation, motion graphics, and content from national experts.
