Presidential Strand Discussion Sessions
This strand features discussion style sessions ranging from think tanks to World Cafes in which the larger group is divided into small groups of 4 or 5 people for multiple rounds of intimate conversation focused on questions of importance. The sessions encourage participants to share their evaluation examples and create their own visionary evaluation for supporting a sustainable, equitable future relevant to the context in which they work. These sessions provide special opportunities to network and build new relationships with other conference attendees.
Each session includes attention to one or more the three areas of emphasis in the conference theme: systems thinking, building relationships, and equitable and sustainable living.
The conversations prepare you to be an active participant in the closing plenary about how AEA can support visionary evaluation for a sustainable, equitable future for all.
If you prefer presentation style sessions followed by questions and answer, check out the Presidential Strand Presentation Sessions.
