Thank you for your post. This is one of the motivations I had for becoming an evaluator. I agree that we are in a unique position to bridge this, and may do so.
What specific activities can help bridge this divide? Standardized rubrics for measurement come to mind but curious if you have other examples?
How does bridging these communities fit into the process of evaluation and evaluator competencies?
What could incentivize those activities? How can researchers, programs, funders, or policy benefit?
I am very interested in your dissertation and hope these questions can help!
