  Introduction
   
  The UK Evaluation Society (UKES) seeks to promote and improve the theory, practice, understanding and utilisation of evaluation and its contribution to public knowledge. To support their vision the Society has developed the fundamentals for evaluation training programme to share expertise and knowledge in evaluation methodologies and approaches to help build capability and capacity in the Evaluation Community. It is open to both members and non-members of the UK Evaluation Society and complements UKES' Voluntary Evaluator Peer Review (VEPR) programme the Society is developing and the Evaluation Capabilities Framework.
   
 

Our Developmental Evaluation course will increase participants' understanding about the unique niche, strengths and limitations of Developmental Evaluation. Developmental Evaluation (DE) is a fresh approach to evaluating social innovation, often taking place in challenging and complex settings, at the interface of different knowledge systems. This highly practical, interactive and reflective day will introduce you to the eight principles that guide Developmental Evaluation and unpack the role of the developmental evaluator. The course will be presented by one of the world's leading developmental evaluation practitioners Kate McKegg.
