An Invitation to AES Members
Date and Time: Friday 20th February commencing 12:30 pm
Venue: Theatre Q227, Level 2, Melbourne Graduate School of Education, 234 Queensberry Street, Carlton, Vic 3053
As a light lunch will be provided please register online by 13 February.
A Special General Meeting of Members will be held prior to a Presentation and Q & A Session with the Board of the Australasian Evaluation Society. This is a great opportunity to meet the Board of the AES and hear Dr Lyn Alderman, our AES President speak on current issues of interest to our AES members.
This will also be an opportunity to raise issues with the Board on topics of interest to yourself and getting some sense of where the Board is heading during this year of evaluation. EvalYear has identified four themes which will be discussed during 2015. The Board's response to these four themes could be one of the discussion points. These themes are:
- Identifying the key future priorities for the global evaluation community to launch the 2016-2020 Global Evaluation Agenda;
- Bridging the gap between the evaluation community (supply side) and the policy makers community (demand side), including Parliamentarians, to ensure good quality, equity-focused and gender-responsive evaluations are demanded and used in policy making;
- Mainstreaming equity-focused and gender-responsive evaluations in Sustainable Development Goals at international level, and in national development strategies at national level;
- Developing equity-focused and gender-responsive National Evaluation policies.
This special event has been organised in lieu of the February seminar normally held by the AES Vic Committee at Vic Health. Please note the change of time, date and venue.
We look forward to your participation.
