Ontario Trillium Foundation videos now live!

Earlier this year, CES-ON partnered with the Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF) to host a cross-sectoral conversation focused on how to evaluate inclusion-focused initiatives. We had a robust conversation with four people who do a combination of evaluation, research and/or program delivery in the inclusion space. Our contributors were Jessica Ferne, John Beebe, Paul Favaro and Andrew Taylor.

In coordination with OTF, we will be releasing video clips of the discussion on OTF’s Knowledge Centre. Three are available now!

  • How To Focus On Inclusion in the Midst of Transition: Jessica Ferne discusses the evolution of the License to Learn initiative through data and evaluation.
  • Evaluation Can Be Simple: Andrew Taylor’s review of his experience helping a funders’ collaborative come together with Indigenous youth to design evaluation in a way that was meaningful to them.
  • What is Empowerment Evaluation?: Dr. Paul Favaro explains an approach to evaluation that he sees as a tool for transformation.
  • Coming up next: John Beebe on Thursday, October 4, 2018.

For these and other clips, please join OTF’s Knowledge Centre, or follow CES-ON’s Twitter or LinkedIn Groups.
