Postponed - AES20: Through the lens

The Australian Evaluation Society's 2020 conference will be held in Brisbane in September. The conference theme is 'Through the lens' - Evaluation has the power to be a lens that transforms the way we see the world. As evaluators, as people, we wear many lenses that shape what we see and how we focus our vision. Our lenses can help us to reflect on the wisdom of our elders; to refract our knowledge and learning in ways that enable us to embrace diversity in our communities; as well as to refocus on the future and create shared visions that resonate.

Conference theme: Through the lens

Evaluation has the power to be a lens that transforms the way we see the world. As evaluators, as people, we wear many lenses that shape what we see and how we focus our vision. Our lenses can help us to reflect on the wisdom of our elders; to refract our knowledge and learning in ways that enable us to embrace diversity in our communities; as well as to refocus on the future and create shared visions that resonate.

Join us in 2020 as we come together to build clarity and insight, and to share our visions for the future of evaluation.

Reflect

Understanding our past to inform our future. Walking with those who know the land, we learn and remember. 

Refract

Adapting, growing and embracing diversity. We need to continually evolve and diversify our evaluative thinking and practice to be relevant.

Refocus

Pushing the boundaries, practicing on the edge. In future proofing we need to be prepared to take chances, to do things differently and to challenge the norms. 

Resonate

Building the translational and transformational impact of evaluation. For evaluation to be meaningful and useful, we need to enable the translation of knowledge into action and, ultimately, impact.
