Cheryl Huffman will guide a conversation about supporting the staff of the SPDGs we evaluate with TA regarding evaluation as well as other aspects of the project. Participants will explore various roles evaluators may play as part of a SPDG team, the different types of TA evaluators are commonly asked to provide, and factors affecting how they provide TA.
