Eval11 Session 974: Research On Evaluation - Anytime, Anywhere, Evaluation Ethics DO Matter 

11-10-2011 08:58

Custom and norms reflect what we value. This presentations provides an international comparison of evaluation ethical challenges identified by evaluation communities in Canada, United States and Australia. While the dialogue around evaluation ethical challenges has been quieter in Canada, the presentation will highlight results from a 2010 national survey of Canadian evaluators. These will be analyzed against a backdrop of findings from other national surveys – members of the American Evaluation Association (1993; 2009) and the Australasian Evaluation Society (2003). Based on these findings, the authors (Heather Buchanan and Wayne MacDonald) argue for a more proactive agenda for the Canadian Evaluation Society to support the needs and challenges of its members in dealing with ethical challenges. For AEA, while the number of sessions on ethics has increased, the question posed is whether the topic should be a standing item at annual meetings, and proposals actively solicited and considered by a dedicated TIG/committee?
