15.04.2021 - EES-Online Seminar: Getting Practical with Text Mining in Evaluation

The next webinar in EES’ ongoing series “Emerging Data Landscapes in M&E” is co-hosted by Thematic Working Group 6 Methods and Designs, and will focus on how evaluators can use text mining techniques to make the most out of the data in project documents and descriptions. While the webinar will cover both the conceptual and technical aspects of these methods, the practical focus will be on how new users can implement them. Through three case studies from DEval and Norad, the presentations and discussion will focus on text mining’s potential, pitfalls, and “how to” tips to get started.
