Evaluation 2.0 is a set of ideas about evaluation that Pontydysgu are developing. At its simplest, it's about using social software at all stages of the evaluation process in order to make evaluation more open, more transparent and more accessible to a wider range of stakeholders. At a theoretical level, we are trying to push forward and build on Guba and Lincoln's ideas around 4th generation evaluation which is a constructivist approach incorporating key ideas around negotiation, multiple realities and stakeholder engagement. For those of you who want to explore this in more detail, there is a much fuller explanation in another post.
Pekka Kamarainen is proposing to use some of these ideas and practices in the evaluation of the Network of Trainers in Europe. This web page will be the 'home page' for all those who are involved in the evaluation, in the network and in the wider community around the network activities.
We hope all of you will use this page to help us build the evaluation processes, to provide data and, even more importantly, to participate in the interpretation of that data.
