    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!

    About the Presenter: Jenny Spencer is the founder and director of Untethered Impact, a boutique, woman-owned consulting studio supporting social sector organizations to understand their constituents, design innovative solutions, tell compelling and data-driven stories, and amplify their positive impact in the world.

    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.

    Facilitators: Jean Serge Quesnel, CE, FCES was director of the evaluation offices of the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA), the Interamerican Development Bank (IADB), and the United Nations Children Fund (UNICEF). The was one of the first chair of the evaluation Expert Group of the Development Assistance Committee of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (DAC/OECD).  He was the founding chair of the Evaluation Cooperation Group (ECG) of the International Financial Institutions. He chaired the United Nations Taskforce that drafted the Evaluation Norms and Standard for the UN System. He is the founding coordinator of the Francophone Evaluation Network.

    Jean Serge Quesnel is an associate professor at the National Public Administration School of Québec and a visiting professor at the Center for International Development and Globalisation of the University of Ottawa. He taught evaluation many years at the United Nations System Staff College.
