Professor's portrait picture

Current issues influenced by the program's research

"Government and community organisations must be accountable in order to justify the use of public funds and demonstrate their impacts. To do this, a variety of evaluative approaches are available that address different aspects of programmes. These approaches are the subject of research in the field and relate to current themes in our society: culturally sensitive evaluation, evaluation in Aboriginal communities, gender sensitive evaluation, etc. All the human issues that we find in our environments are also at the heart of discussions among evaluators."
Isabelle Bourgeois, Associate Professor, Faculty of Education
