Researcher-Practitioner Partnerships: What to Consider in the Early Days of Evaluation (Webinar)

On August 27, 2020 the MAST Center hosted a webinar focused on the early stage of evaluation and establishing effective research-practitioner partnerships. Experts in healthy marriage and relationship education (HMRE) evaluation provided tips and strategies researchers can use at each stage of evaluation, including evaluation planning and management, identifying stakeholders, determining evaluation questions and goals, and more.

This was the first 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.
