Photostories: An Engaging Way to Share Evaluation Results

Evaluation stakeholders are becoming less interested in reading lengthy, formal evaluation reports. InsightShare, a data visualization consulting firm, has proposed a new and engaging way to share evaluation results – Photostories. On a recent blog post by the American Evaluation Association, they describe photostories as a new format developed by InsightShare for sharing project case studies in an accessible, fun and visually engaging format. Each photostory is basically a comic that documents a project’s methodology. You can view an example here. InsightShare explains that this reporting technique can be used to increase buy-in from stakeholders and help overcome linguistic barriers. For more on Photostories from InsightShare, visit this American Evaluation Association blog post.
