Child Welfare Evaluation Virtual Summit Series

Child Welfare Evaluation Virtual Summit Series LogoAfter the cancellation of the 2013 National Child Welfare Evaluation Summit, the Children’s Bureau decided to develop short videos as a means of sharing ideas and issues that could not be presented at the conference. Federal and guest authors were invited to develop scripts on a handful of evaluation topics and to work with CB to design and produce the videos.

The result is the Virtual Summit Series, a group of 17 videos that combine illustration, animation, motion graphics, and content from national experts. Each tackles a particular evaluation-related topic, and many propose solutions to common evaluation problems and direct viewers to additional tools and resources. The videos are intended to advance the major objectives of the conference by building capacity for improved evaluation, promoting further dialogue among evaluation stakeholders, and disseminating information.

Videos are being released through June 2014:
