Centre for Cultural Value to launch free-to-access, online evaluation training
Would you like to hear from experts, develop new approaches and build your evaluation skills and confidence?
Together with the University of Leeds, we are launching a new, free-to-access online course: Evaluation for Arts, Culture and Heritage: Principles and Practice.
Available via the FutureLearn online learning platform, completing all six modules should take no longer than eight hours of study time.
In 2021, the Centre responded to industry-wide demand for support with evaluation. The result was our collaboratively created Evaluation Principles: a sharing of ideas to inform how evaluation is carried out and used within the arts, culture and heritage sector. This new online course builds on the Principles by exploring how to put them into practice.
Ben Walmsley, Director at the Centre for Cultural Value, says:
The course’s aim is to support a more purposeful and proportional approach to evaluation; it explores the Evaluation Principles and enables learners to consider how to apply them in their specific context to complement and support artistic ambitions.
