    Indigenous Evaluation 

    Presenter: Nicole Bowman (Mohican/Lunaape-Munsee), PhD

    For over two decades, Dr. Nicole Bowman (Mohican/Lunaape) has utilized traditional Indigenous knowledge and theories to inform her policy, evaluation, and professional practice at a project and nation to nation level between Tribal and non-Tribal Governments. She has served as the American Evaluation Association’s (AEA) Chair or Co-Chair for the Indigenous Peoples in Evaluation since 2015 and since 2016 has been serving as AEA’s representative for the International Working Group (IWG) and as an appointment on EvalIndigenous (sub-task force of EvalPartners).

    Dr. Bowman received AEA’s 2018 Robert Ingle Service Award (first Indigenous awardee) and she regularly publishes, is a conference keynoter or trainer, and provides technical support to Tribal and non-Tribal leadership and board members to inform nation-to-nation theories, methods, and direct service for systems and program evaluation. Interactively and passionately she works to build the capacities, knowledge, and skills of Indigenous and non-Indigenous stakeholders so mutual and respectful relations result in more impactful and sustainable changes.

    Dr. Bowman received her PhD from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA where she was on academic fellowship and currently is employed by the Wisconsin Center for Educational Research as a culturally responsive evaluator. She is also on the journal review boards for the American Journal of Evaluation, Canadian Journal of Program Evaluation, and the Multidisciplinary Evaluation Journal.

    Using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) for Program Evaluation

    Presenter: Javzandulam Azuma

    This workshop provides an introduction to geographic information systems (GIS) and how mapping and analyses can inform a variety of evaluation stages. It presents basic GIS mapping concepts and basic spatial analysis methodology using actual applications in evaluation. The workshop will discuss a variety of available software – paid and free – with demonstrations of ArcGIS (paid) and open-source QGIS (free). Through a hypothetical case study, participants will engage in exercises to deepen their understanding of GIS. The workshop will also discuss the strengths, limitations, and future trends of GIS in the context of the evaluation field. However, due to time limits, software complexity, and technology limitations at the course will not include hands-on training of GIS software. This workshop is appropriate for beginners to GIS.

    Dr. Javzandulam Azuma is a Data Analyst at the Center on the Family, University of Hawaii Manoa. She has over 10 years of experience in GIS, Remote Sensing and their applications. Her research interests include developing methods and modelling to address various issues in spatial social, and environmental science using a combination of multiple tools including remote sensing, GIS and statistics. She earned her Ph.D. in GIS and Remote Sensing from Chiba University, Japan.
