This is a free event organised by the New South Wales Regional Network Committee of the AES. Our seminar series provides an opportunity for you to meet with AES members and others in the evaluation community and to share and learn from the experiences of fellow evaluators.

Seminar overview:

This will be a facilitated discussion of ethical issues in evaluation. The issues to be covered include:

  • What does ‘ethics’ mean?
  • What does ethics in evaluation mean?
  • Best practice principles and practice
  • Potential pitfalls and ways to avoid them

The session will start with a brief overview of the 'what' of ethics, and then we will draw on the experience of participants to explore ethics in practice. There will be small group work conversations to share their own experience and perspectives of ethics in evaluation.
