Shorthand is the premier “scrolly-telling” tool that anyone can use to develop beautiful, engaging digital content. Many organizations use Shorthand for communications, but we believe it also holds immense power and potential for helping communicate program and evaluation-related information that often gets dumped into too-long PDFs that people don’t read or complicated data dashboards that users don’t understand. Enter: data storytelling.
In this interactive workshop, we will share examples of Shorthand stories for a variety of social sector-related use cases and introduce the Shorthand platform. Participants will gain first-hand experience building a data-driven Shorthand story, including setting up an account, exploring Shorthand section templates, building out sections with prepared media and text, and embedding interactive Flourish graphics. Since Shorthand is as easy as PowerPoint, participants will leave the session ready and able to develop and publish their own simple Shorthand story – without needing to know any code!

Topic: Public interventions are carried out in an interrelated and multi-dimensional way. To discern their diversity and complementarity, we will resort to a stratification of six levels of interventions. Each level requires the application of specific appropriate evaluation concepts to evaluate their performance.
The first level is that of administrative activities carried out through targeted procedures. The second level is that of projects that involve several stakeholders interacting according to a given scenario. The third level is multidimensional programming carried out in partnership. The fourth level addresses the institutional effectiveness of actors involved in the public sector. The fifth level is one of interactive strategies and the sixth is public policy impacts.
During the workshop we will examine the intentionality of each level and the tools needed at each level and the inter-level linkages for a better systemic use of evaluation within the public sector.
