Métodos para evaluar la colaboración pública UCL (UK)
This document provides a guide to encourage those running public engagement activities to think through and choose the most appropriate methods and techniques to evaluate the delivery and impact of their activities.
This guide draws upon a range of sources, including the experience of UCL staff and students, the UCL Public Engagement Unit and its programme partners, and literature on public engagement and research methods, to provide a brief introduction to a range of evaluation methodologies and examples of how they can be used throughout the life of your project.
Evaluation is a systematic way of reflecting on and assessing the value of what is being done (i.e. a project, a programme, an event). Evaluation is commonly interpreted as an end product or an activity taking place at the end of a project. However evaluation should be considered as a process, taking place across all phases of a project, used to determine what has happened and whether the initial aims of the project have been carried out and achieved. Evaluation is more than assessing and measuring; it helps set the stage for a culture of learning, change and improvement.
