Measuring a ‘moving target’ – designing evaluations for HCD programs
Human-centered design (HCD) is increasingly being used as a complementary approach to traditional global health methods to design or optimize innovative solutions due to its ability to bring new ideas to entrenched problems, integrate multiple stakeholder perspectives, and bring in a strong human lens among other advantages.
However these tools also present some challenges when applying conventional evaluation approaches. There is an inherent difficulty in designing an evaluation for a project rooted in HCD and Adaptive Implementation approaches that continues to adapt and improve its interventions over its project lifecycle.
This webinar will explore how addressing these gaps and creating more effective ways to evaluate programs that utilize HCD and other continuous program improvement tools can provide tremendous value in scaling up evidence-based user-centered approaches.
