About This Workshop

There is growing interest in creative methods of evaluation. The trick is to ensure that such creative approaches are also robust. This workshop offers step-by- step guidance on how you can achieve this balance of creative and quality when using visual evaluation methods. The workshop introduces essential options in the visual evaluation methods toolkit, including:

  • First-person video
  • Photo-elicitation interviews
  • Annotated drawings

While these methods are relatively new to the context of evaluating public engagement, widening participation and informal learning activities, they hold great potential for accessing aspects of audience experience and impacts that are difficult to express. For example, visual methods can be particularly effective at identifying the process that audiences go through when responding to an activity and their emotional responses to experiences. The workshop will take you on a tour through these innovative evaluation methods, identifying why they are so useful and how to use them effectively.
