Call for Presentations--Canadian Evaluation Society 2013: Evaluation Across Boundaries

Deadline February 15, 2013
Share Your Knowledge: Present at the 2013 Canadian Evaluation Conference

The Canadian Evaluation Society invites you to submit a presentation proposal for its 2013 conference Evaluation Across Boundaries June 9th – 12th in Toronto, Canada. This year, delegates will examine the relationship between evaluators and those evaluated, especially in the context of these four conference strands:

  • Discovery: What are implications for individual skill-sets and aptitudes? What are impacts to approaches, methodologies, technologies and tools useful and relevant to individual practice and practice quality?
  • Engagement: How can we make evaluation accessible across a whole region? What are implications for the diverse communities we serve?
  • Outreach: What is our role in embedding evaluative thinking and evaluation in our organizations, networks and communities?
  • Network building: How do we expand and leverage the Canadian experience to influence and shape governance in the local and global sphere beyond traditional borders and boundaries?

Presentations could include a paper, an expert lecture, a roundtable discussion, a demonstration, a think tank, or a panel.
