Three Real-Life Evaluations in South Africa

Tuesday, September 21, 2010
Research on Evaluation Study Group

Dr. Joha Louw-Potgieter, University of Cape Town


12:00-1:00 pm

This presentation focuses on three Masters' dissertations completed at the University of Cape Town. All three are theory-driven evaluations and illustrate:

  • how difficult it is to elicit a programme theory from a client
  • how to add value to the client's theory by means of social science research
  • what insights first time evaluators gained from doing a real-life evaluation

The domains of the three dissertations are: a community gardening programme; a refugee programme; and the Poverty Hearings Programme of 2008 in South Africa.

This meeting is a part of Dr. Tarek Azzam's "Research in Evaluation" meeting series.
