This is a free event organised by the Queensland Regional Network Committee of the AES. Our free event series provides an opportunity for you to meet with AES members and others in the evaluation community and to share and learn from the experiences of fellow evaluators.

Event overview:

As we launch in to 2022, this interactive session will reflect on the challenges and opportunities from the year that was in 2021. In particular, it will draw on the experiences of evaluating across physically remote parts of Australia and overseas, as well as those made remote by virtue of travel and border restrictions.

We will discuss the challenges faced, opportunities pursued and innovations, improvisations and insights gained from the year that was in:

  • planning, delivering and participating in evaluation
  • nurturing and growing evaluation culture and capacity
  • using evaluation insights and evidence.
