The theme for the 2020 Canadian Evaluation Society Conference is Evaluation Utilization: Reaching our potential? This event is the largest gathering for evaluators in Canada. Registrations open 1 March 2020.
From the event website:
Over the past 40 years, our notions of evaluation use – what it is, who is it for, and what constitutes success – have evolved, but critically important questions remain; just how comprehensive is evaluation use and what more can and should we be doing to enhance use?
The 2020 Canadian Evaluation Society Conference will explore the world of evaluation utilization through three strands by first positioning it (what is it? is it a priority?), then by achieving it (how is it achieved? how do we know it has been achieved?), and by questioning it (whose utilization?).
Proposals for this conference have now closed. Registrations open March 1 2020.
