The CJPE Book Club:


The CJPE is pleased to host this book club, in collaboration with CES. The purpose of the book club is to explore recent CJPE publications through a web-based presentation by one of our authors, followed by a Q&A from participants. The authors will have the opportunity to share their work and any new updates since publication, and the participants will have the opportunity to share their thoughts, comments and questions with the author. What better way to explore ground breaking evaluation research and innovative practices?


Although it is not mandatory, participants are encouraged to consult the article on the menu prior to the meeting, in order to fully benefit from the exchanges. No worries if you have not had time to read the article, its author will present a short summary.
