You can now listen to Radical (Re)imagining on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, YouTube and where ever you listen to your favorite podcasts.

The Invitation

Your hosts: Libby, Deven, & Tiffany. We are evaluators, educators, facilitators. Our work is individually and collectively focused on reflective practice, interpersonal effectiveness/development, and embodied learning/healing.

You: An evaluator, researcher, academic, data professional, or someone who makes a living in the information economy.

The Frame: As professionals who tend to overvalue expertise, knowledge, the written word, our left brain – – we can sometimes forget that we are human. And that we can be fully human AT WORK. We believe that through reflective practices, interpersonal development, & embodied healing we can allow ourselves to fully express our humanity.

The Offering: At the beginning of each month we will share a reflective prompt. One of your hosts will share their response- – in NO MORE THAN 300 words. Less is often more. We sit at a pivotal moment in history, let’s talk about which direction to move, together. Later in the month we will have a conversation about the prompt with someone…maybe you? That conversation is posted to YouTube and released as a podcast.

The Ask: Take a deep breath, open your heart, and radically (re)imagine how we might be more human in our work. We invite you into conversation, let’s explore together. Write your own response to the prompt in the comments. No more than 300 words. You can also tweet at us or reach out to be in conversation with us.

The Path Forward: Emergent. Unfolding. Co-created.

Even through the trials and tribulations of a year and a half that have seemed defeating and draining at times, we have had the privilege and pleasure to radically imagine with you…

Becoming Culturally Responsive

As you may know, we do our best to build out our monthly topics based on our guest discussions each month. Last month, we were honored to have Dr. Aisha Rios join us. She shared her experiences as a practitioner and spoke about abolition within evaluation. This was an excellent foundation for the next three…

Departing the Buffer Zone

Last month Tiffany wrote about embracing collaboration as a path towards moving evaluation to a system of learning, rather than a system of accountability. We had an enlightening chat about that post with frequent Rad commenter and PhD student Chris Hall. He spoke extensively about the political and historical context of evaluation (listen here if…

When 1+1=3

Thank you for joining us for the July reflection from Tiffany Tovey: Rory Neuner reflected in our last podcast episode, “It’s a good idea to remind ourselves that we’re all working really for the same end goals.” As evaluators in this society, we are more often than not being brought into programs and organizations that…
