Multimedia: Videos, Podcasts, and More
As part of our evaluation work, Innovation Network often conducts webinars and other online presentations. Whenever possible we try to make those available to the broader evaluation and nonprofit field.

- Information Visualization Throughout the Evaluation Lifecycle: Innovation Network directors Johanna Morariu & Veena Pankaj conducted an AEA coffee break webinar exploring the visual side of evaluation. They share approaches and examples of how to incorporate data and information visualization throughout the four stages of the evaluation life cycle: planning, data collection, analysis and reporting, and action and improvement.
- Portfolio Evaluation vs. Grant Evaluation: In this webinar Johanna Morariu and Ehren Reed discuss four levels of evaluation: grant-level, portfolio-level, foundation-level, and issue-level. The presentation addresses the pros and cons of these four levels of evaluation, and when one level may be more appropriate than another. Also included are considerations for right-sizing your evaluation approach—design, data collection, analysis, and reporting differences between grant and portfolio evaluations.
- Lessons Community and Smaller Foundations can Learn from the Evaluation Practices of Large Foundations: Ever wonder what the rest of us can learn from the evaluation approaches of large foundations? In this webinar Johanna Morariu and Ehren Reed provide an overview of The Packard Foundation’s The Standards, an example of a comprehensive strategy and evaluation handbook. The presenters also share four lessons that can be learned from the evaluation approaches of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, The Annie E. Casey Foundation, The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation.
