The C2017 Webinar Recording - Transformation in Evaluators' Roles: Reflections from CES 2017 Presenters

We'll be working with the Canadian Evaluation Society BC and Yukon Chapter (CESBCY) to post a guest blog on this topic post-conference, but in the meantime - and in preparation for some great discussions at the CES2017 - have a watch of this pre-conference webinar that shares reflections from a handful of presenters at the upcoming CES 2017 Conference. These presentations share a common focus on the shifting role of the evaluator in the assessment of innovative or evolving programs that exist within complex and dynamic environments. Each presenter will provides a brief presentation, followed by a question and
answer period.

Watch the webinar recording here.

You can also read Patricia Rogers' blog from earlier in the year about ways conference sessions can be more engaging, including the use of 'flipped' conference sessions and the sharing of information and presentations beforehand, so at BetterEvaluation we're very happy to be able to help share this webinar that does just that.
