AES Conference 2012

28th August, 2012
Event City: 

Australasian Evaluation Society 2012 Conference

The event starts with workshops on Monday 27 & Tuesday 28 August 2012, the Conference itself will be held 29 – 31 August at the Adelaide Convention Centre.

This year’s theme, Evaluation in a Changing World, invites all those with an interest in evaluation to think about the ways our world is changing and therefore our work is – or could be –changing. As examples: What are the implications:
  • of the changing balance of world power for work in international development, and therefore for its evaluation?
  • of climate change for the evaluation of work in natural resource management and disaster management?
  • of wicked social problems and their implications for the evaluation of the complex, fuzzy policies and programs that seek to address them?
  • of changing social and community relationships within and across cultures, both in Australia and overseas?
  • of new technology for the ways that societies work, that programs work, for what policy makers and program staff may need from evaluation; and for the ways in which we might collect, store, report and represent evaluation data and findings?
  • for what evaluators need to know and to be able to do, in this complex and fast changing world?
