Presentation Formats

Skill-building--Skill-building presentations are 60-minutes of teaching of an evaluation skill. It’s a “show, tell, and apply” presentation that teaches a concept, process, or tool, with most of the time dedicated to hands-on activities that let participants practice what’s demonstrated. Presenters should provide a balance of presentation, discussion, and practice for session attendees. Ideally, workshops will address one or more of the evaluator competencies defined by AEA (See https://www.eval.org/d/do/4382).

Roundtable--60-minute guided discussions; an opportunity to share a work in progress or an issue/concern relevant to evaluators. Roundtable presentations typically include a short presentation, followed by discussion and feedback. Roundtable presenters should bring targeted questions to pose to others at the table in order to learn from and with those attending. Roundtables are an ideal format for networking and focused discussion on a particular topic, including work-in-progress. The abstract should include the targeted questions to be discussed.

Proposal Evaluation Categories
All proposals are peer reviewed based on the following categories:
a) relevance to the field of evaluation
b) contribution to the knowledge, skill-building, and practice of evaluators
