about this workshop

Evaluating intergenerational programs is a critical step in ensuring good practice continues. This workshop will review creative ways to measure success (or improvements) needed within intergenerational programs to embrace and capture multiple stakeholder voices. However, because of the smaller population sizes in our programs – quantitative measurements (i.e., Surveys) – are often not appropriate measurements. Instead, we need to look to other, more creative outlets, to capture the wonder of intergenerational practice.

In this workshop, we will outline and briefly discuss the methodologies of photo-voice and video ethnography before work-shopping other strategies that we may use to evaluate intergenerational practice.

Associate Professor Katrina Radford
Katrina is a mixed methodologist who’s research interests focus on managing an ageing population in three key areas: 1) How can we better support an ageing workforce? 2) How can we better retain and support employees within social care sectors? and 3) How can we build better systems or programs that provide quality care for the ageing population? As a social gerontologist, she has a particular passion for building the momentum for inter-generational practice in Australia as a potential solution for the ageing population but also the social care workforce of the future.
