The American Evaluation Association (AEA)'s annual conference theme is "Evaluation + Design". The AEA will bring together professionals from around the world who conduct, use, support, and study evaluation. Through this global community, the conference will explore how design and evaluation can be integrated to strengthen programs, benefit the environment, and improve the lives of people.
What would an evaluation conference look like if it was run by people who know and care about presenting information to support use? (hint- that should be us)Blog2nd March, 2017
All too often conferences fail to make good use of the experience and knowledge of people attending, with most time spent presenting prepared material that could be better delivered other ways, and not enough time spent on discussions and active learning. With closing dates for two evaluation conferences fast approaching (the Australasian Evaluation Society and the American Evaluation Association), could you propose something more useful, that would demonstrate how much we know and care about communicating and using information?

This is the second of a two-part blog on strategies to support the use of evaluation, building on a session the BetterEvaluation team facilitated at the American Evaluation Association conference last year. While the session focused particularly on strategies to use after an evaluation report has been produced, it is important to address use before and during an evaluation.
