Summary: Blue Marble Evaluation is focused on training the next generation of evaluators to “Think Globally, Act Globally and Evaluate Globally.” Taking a Blue Marble perspective means viewing the world holistically and thinking beyond nation-states, sector silos, and narrowly identified issues. Blue Marble evaluators are tasked with watching for, making sense of, and interpreting the implications of interconnections between the global and local, the macro and the micro, and the relationships between worldwide patterns and area-specific challenges. They become adept at zooming out for a big picture perspective and zooming in to understand and incorporate contextual variations, problems, and solutions. This workshop will build evaluators’ skills at thinking globally. We will bring in expertise from our partners at World Savvy, a Minneapolis-based nonprofit that has been working to build the global competence of students and educators for over 17 years.
