The REC blog provides a bridge to understanding research and evaluation topics.

Demystifying Research and Evaluation

As an organizational leader, you could ask endless questions. How do you know that what you are doing is making a difference? What can you do better? Which programs are making the most significant impact? What should I do next? How can we differentiate ourselves from our competitors? Taking the time to answer your questions will help your organization make better, more data-informed decisions.

My name is Dr. Annette Shtivelband, and I am a researcher, evaluator, and consultant trained in the academic world.

As an applied researcher and evaluator, I know how to distill the complexities of the academic world and bring that knowledge to practice.

What is the purpose of a research and evaluation blog?
