Last week, FSG and Stanford Social Innovation Review hosted Next Generation Evaluation: Embracing Complexity, Connectivity, and Change at Stanford University. The sell-out crowd of evaluation enthusiasts from 27 states and 3 countries included nonprofit leaders, grantmakers, evaluators, and academics who came together to discuss the evolution of evaluation and learning in the social sector. Presentations about development evaluation, shared measurement, and big data sparked conversations in the room and on social media.
We were thrilled to see a lively Twitter discussion from attendees, with almost 1,000 #nextgeneval tweets the day of the event. We look forward to continuing the discussion on the changing role of evaluation in the social sector, and would love to hear your questions about the conference in the comments below or on Twitter.
