The course covers current quantitative and qualitative evaluation methods and different project forms. The course mainly focuses on the welfare sector, but is also relevant for evaluation and projects in the industrial life and other organisations. In connection with this, evaluation and work in project form is put in relation to other knowledge production, both practice-oriented and scientific. Development in the public sector is used as a context for an understanding of how different project forms and evaluation instruments have become increasingly important in the organisation of institutions central to society. The difference between managing projects or evaluating change management that is carried out in organisations or as cooperation projects between organisations is addressed.
The course participants should work actively with case studies. The course should facilitate strengthening the knowledge of, and the ability to be a part of, concrete work with social processes that have importance for work with processes of change, from implementation to evaluation, mainly in the public sector.

The course includes independent studies, practical exercises, workshops and seminars, where the student is expected to account for retrieved material/literature and the individual professional and personal starting point, both orally and in writing.
A fictitious project with following evaluation is presented orally and in writing.

Students failing an exam covering either the entire course or part of the course two times are entitled to have a new examiner appointed for the reexamination.
