New to evaluation? Come join the conversation ...
Lessons from the Trenches
Experienced evaluators never make mistakes.
Or do they?
Join a lively conversation on evaluation bloopers and lessons learned led by well-known evaluators Kylie Hutchinson, Diana Tindall and Marla Steinberg. Not all mistakes will have positive outcomes; positive for who? Errors can be learning opportunities.
This is an open session for anyone who is interested, from career transitioners, to students to new CES members or the curious. In the 2016 national member survey, CES heard you clearly say that more efforts can be made for new evaluators -- this is (y)our chance to pick up on recent Chapter initiatives and see what works to launch a national stream to connect and support new evaluators.
The conversation will wrap up with a call for interest of volunteers to form an ongoing working group to organize similar initiatives for emerging evaluators.
Date: January 29, 2018
