The Systems in Evaluation TIG Leadership Team is pleased to announce the first Systems in Evaluation Unconference. An unconference is a loosely structured conference that emphasizes the informal, emergent exchange of ideas between participants, rather than following a conventionally structured program of speakers and presenters. Join us online daily on October 13, 14, and 15 from 3 – 4:30 pm Eastern Time to learn and share with your colleagues in an informal virtual environment. Build your knowledge and skills in systems evaluation without ever leaving the office!
How Will the Unconference Work?
Participants will log on at the indicated time each day and, following a short welcome and orientation, either join a specific discussion topic in a virtual breakout room or create their own discussion topic and breakout group. Each breakout room is limited to 10 people total and include a facilitator to enhance discussion and engage learning. If participants are not able to enter the breakout room of their choice they are encouraged to try another room or start a new breakout room topic. Participants must have a Google account plus a reliable Internet connection and microphone; a webcam is also strongly suggested.
Different sets of topics from the list above will be offered each day of the Unconference. Participants have the option of attending one, two, or all three days. Registration is free but space will be limited.
