John Owen

Centre for Program Evaluation, University of Melbourne
Principal Fellow
In keeping with his academic interests in knowledge utilization, John Owen is committed to evaluation strategies that promote change and improvement in policy and program delivery. He is of the view that commissioned evaluations should respond to the knowledge needs of decision makers in government and industry, a view that has formed the basis of over 40 evaluative investigations he has undertaken over the past two decades. He was awarded the ETS prize for outstanding contributions to evaluation by the Australasian Evaluation Society (AES), and was made a Fellow of the Society in 2003. He was awarded a Universitas21 Scholarship by Melbourne University for outstanding leadership in teaching and led a team that developed an innovative post-graduate training program in evaluation on the internet, which now caters for students from across Australasia and overseas.He is a regular contributor to journals and at international evaluation conferences in Australia and overseas. His book: Program Evaluation: Forms and Approaches provides an integrated framework to evaluation theory and practice that has had favourable reviews worldwide. A third edition was published in Australasia in 2006 and was released in the USA through Guildford Press. The book has been translated into several languages.John has an Honours degree in physics from Melbourne University and a PhD from Monash University. He continues to be interested in the adoption of scientific and technical innovations and the measurement of their impact.
