Researcher-Practitioner Partnerships: Communicating Through Implementation Challenges (Webinar)

On September 24, 2020 the MAST Center hosted a webinar focused on the timing and type of researcher-practitioner communication needed during program evaluation implementation. Experts in healthy marriage and relationship education (HMRE) evaluation provided conversation starters to help ensure that evaluation methods and processes align with key elements of service delivery to inform practice and achieve evaluation goals.

This was the second webinar in a three-part series, Researcher-Practitioner Partnerships Throughout the Evaluation Life Cycle, offering discussion, tips and strategies, and tools for the different stages of evaluation, featuring HMRE experts from Child Trends, Public Strategies, and a seasoned research-practitioner team currently conducting an evaluation in the HMRE field. Although it is a series, each webinar provides stand-alone information and insight on the researcher-practitioner communication for effective partnerships.
