Framework Weaving

Framework Weaving, January 2021

Instructor: Bianca Montrosse-Moorhead

Can evaluation frameworks be successfully combined? Can Theory-Driven Evaluation be used with Appreciative Inquiry? Is it possible for Experimental Design Evaluation and Culturally Responsive Evaluation to be used in tandem? Evaluators often feel “constrained” by using just one framework. Yet, there is little practical guidance to show them how to bring multiple frameworks together.

In this course with Bianca Montrosse-Moorhead, participants will learn all about evaluation practice framework weaving, and how it relates to evaluation models, theories, approaches, and methods. They will (1) investigate various framework weaving options, (2) explore a case study that shows framework weaving in practice, and (3) apply what they have learned to weaving practice frameworks together. Challenge questions we will explore throughout the course include:

  • What is evaluation practice framework weaving and how does it relate to existing evaluation models, theories, approaches, and methods?\
  • What are examples of framework weaving in practice? How do they enhance an evaluation’s quality, coherence, relevance, and usefulness?
  • What process can you use to intentionally weave together practice frameworks? What challenges can arise and how can you address them?

This course is delivered in three interactive modules. Click on the module titles below to read about each. Classes will take place online, via Adobe Connect. Certificates of completion will be provided at the end of the course to all participants who successfully complete the three modules.
