Evaluation Feedback for Enhancing Communities of Practice: A case-study lesson in (avoiding) mixed messages 

10-24-2014 17:05

This presentation addressed sharing evaluation results as storytelling. While the data collection and findings stay constant, the ways evaluators share the results make a difference. Typically, "stories" that emerge from evaluation results follow instrumental logic that enhances the process of task-oriented work groups designed to produce deliverable outcomes. In contrast, communities of practice need stories that follow communicative logic that enhances valuing participation, sharing of knowledge and shared identity. This presentation demonstrates how evaluative stories based on instrumental logic can be counter-productive to the sustenance of a Community of Practice. It includes examples of communicating results differently using each kind of logic.
