Evaluation 2017
Conference: November 6-11, 2017
Professional Development Workshops: November 6-8 & 11, 2017
Washington, DC USA 

During Evaluation 2017, we will explore 4 ways that our community can learn from evaluation to create better practices and outcomes. Evaluation is dependent on learning from each other and putting theory into action.

Learning to Enhance Evaluation Practices
Share evaluation practices, including theories, methods and ethics, or lessons in diverse professional settings.

Learning What Works and Why
Share evidence of what works and why in public policies, programs, and projects.

Learning from Others
Share innovations from other communities that have been or could be incorporated into evaluation practice.

Learning About Evaluation Users and Uses
Share your insights on users of our evaluations, our place in policy decision-making, and effective strategies to increase evaluation utilization.

Given the focus on learning, AEA President Kathy Newcomer encourages all who submit proposals to think creatively and design innovative learning experiences for attendees. Learn more about the 2017 theme.

What We Are Looking For

We are looking for a dynamic variety of presentations to meet the diverse needs of the AEA members. Presentation types include panel discussions, expert lectures, roundtables, skill building workshops, ignite sessions, birds of a feather gatherings, and a new flexible session type that allows for new dynamic and experiential learning.

We encourage you to think creatively about your presentations, their design, and format to provide attendees with the best experience. Please choose the presentation type that best fits your material and utilizes your content in the greatest way. Skill-building workshops, panel discussions, demonstrations, and expert lectures continue to be the most popular session types at the annual conference.
