What this conference is about
This two-day conference focuses on how those active in monitoring and evaluation (M&E) can contribute better to partnerships in development. Key questions to be explored include:
- What kinds of partnerships exist that could benefit from the support of M&E processes?
- How can M&E strengthen these partnerships for sustainable development?
- What is specific about the M&E within different kinds of partnerships, as compared to other implementation forms?
The conference will connect the realities of those working in practice with ideas from people who are thought leaders on the partnership topic. Workshops, clinics and presentations will ensure a lively and thoughtful opportunity to question one’s own practice and find inspiration for new ideas.
Contributions are being developed for the conference. Please also get in touch with ideas for specific contributions – papers, panels, roundtables or workshops are all welcome. See 'call for proposals' under 'documents' on the right hand side.
This conference is the eighth annual ‘M&E on the Cutting Edge’ event organised by the Centre for Development Innovation (CDI), Wageningen University and Research Centre, and Learning by Design, in collaboration with the PPPLab. Other organisations keen to collaborate with this conference can contact the organisers. Past events typically attract over 150 international participants.

"Unquestionably, the continuing disproportionate inequities confronting traditionally disenfranchised communities in education, poverty, health care, and rates of incarceration must remain a primary focus of our collective effort as a global CREA community. It is also critically important that we substantively incorporate the unique assets of our culturally diverse communities in evaluations and assessments to address the inequities facing these communities. We are compelled and responsible for raising questions about what is being done to address the problems by aggressively developing, implementing and advocating approaches that contribute to solutions.
Broadening participation in STEM and beyond
Capacity building in global and local communities and neighborhoods
Development of equitable measures, methods and metrics
Policies and practices of influence and consequence
Examples of effective models of collaborations and networks
The 2016 CREA conference issues a call for papers that demonstrate the kinds of interventions in education, health care, criminal justice, and social services that are being undertaken to address inequities. What has been attempted? What are the results? What works for whom, why, and in what circumstances?
Proposals are invited that address one or more of the following:
1. Reports of interventions/programs—We invite papers that describe interventions/programs that addressed a particular type of inequity that also includes discussions of outcomes and impacts in education, poverty, health care, and in other social sectors.
2. Development of an evidence base— We invite papers that discuss new waves of thinking about evidence of effectiveness, program impact, and interventions that target people of color including indigenous communities. To determine whether interventions/programs are successfully addressing social, health and educational inequities, we need robust evidence base not simply for purposes of problem diagnosis but also to determine the effectiveness of remedies. .
3. Theory of change— We invite papers that explore the plausibility and testability of various theories of change that address inequities in specific, local circumstances, that is, theories of cause and effect that attribute change to intervention/program's strategies and action. The focus is on how theoretical and applied research (i.e. practitioners) explain individual, intergroup, and social/ systemic change occurs, specifically how, their actions will produce positive results.
4. Instrumentation—We invite papers that address the development of measures and indicators that contribute to improved understanding of teaching and learning processes, especially measures and indicators that capture changes resulting from interventions in the teaching and learning processes of
underrepresented individuals and populations. Likewise, we invite papers that address similar issues of instrumentation in health, psychological and cultural assessment.

Call for abstracts
Contributions are invited on methods, practice and policy from civil society, government, academia and business, both in the UK and overseas. Structured abstracts for papers, symposiums, discussion panels and posters should cover:
Theme 1: The culture of evaluation and vice versa - practical experience of either building such a culture or evaluating cultural issues, what worked, why it worked and the pitfalls.
Theme 2: Unpacking complexity - how to analyse a situation and make it manageable, challenging assumptions, techniques for and experience of evaluating complex issues, learning from other disciplines.
Theme 3: Evaluation as a discipline - how to identify evaluators from different professional sectors and backgrounds and build communities of practice between and among them. What makes evaluators different and what value do they add?
Theme 4: Communication - spreading the word about evaluation, either to help develop a culture or to champion change as a result of evaluation findings. For example, through developing toolkits, exploiting the available technology, using social media, thinking out of the box.
The closing date for receipt of abstracts for formal presentations is 13 November 2015 and for poster presentations is 11 April 2016.
