A facilitated discussion of members’ experiences
The evaluation of the effectiveness of one knowledge transfer strategy over another is sorely lacking as determined by a recent systematic review (Mitton, et al., 2007). The review concluded that it is not possible to make a recommendation for developing and implementing any particular KTE strategy, since the state of knowledge in the field does not presently lend itself to knowing what KTE strategies work in what contexts. Unfortunately, strongly worded recommendations that researchers need to develop a methodology to evaluate knowledge transfer interventions are not new. Carol Weiss, in a book chapter, Measuring the Use of Evaluations (1981) was already exploring the inadequacy of merely depending on lagging or instrumental measures of change. A methodology that can be used across multiple contexts is lacking. This session will explore members experiences with evaluation as it relates to KTE activities. Challenges, successes and lessons learned will be shared.
