Arts-Based Methods for Evaluators is an exciting beginner-level online course that provides a glimpse into creative techniques for data-collection. With five two-hour sessions, learners will dive into real-world examples, carve out time to practice arts-based facilitation, and debrief techniques in a supportive learning environment with peers. Participants will learn how to: 
  • Align appropriate arts techniques with evaluation goals 
  • Elicit vibrant qualitative data using different arts techniques 
  • Use data to answer questions and report findings in meaningful ways 
  • Practice individual and organizational reflexivity 
  • Collaborate with interdisciplinary teams
  • Pitch creative techniques to funders and partners

Evaluators (or folks who work in research and evaluation) at any stage of their career who have at least some experience collecting and analyzing qualitative data (e.g., conducting interviews and focus groups) are welcome. Zero artistic skill is required! 

Facilitators Dr. Maya Lefkowich and Jennica Nichols, CE from AND Implementation Inc. are passionate about making creative methods for evaluation useful, accessible, and meaningful. With experience using and teaching arts-based techniques, Maya and Jennica meet learners where they are at and help tailor techniques to everyone's own contexts and professional curiosities.
