data2insight is heading to Atlanta! (Part 2 of 3)

17 Oct data2insight is heading to Atlanta! (Part 2 of 3)

Are you joining us at the AEA Evaluation 2016 Conference?  This year’s conference is October 24-29, 2016 in Atlanta, Georgia.  This year’s theme: Evaluation + Design.

“Every program is designed, yet the field of evaluation has not developed a systematic approach to designing programs. Should we? Can we? What would it look like? What role should evaluators play? How can evaluation be built into a program from the start?”

– AEA President, John Gargani

On Friday, October 28, 2016, at 1:45 pm, data2insight will present its second of three sessions for the conference: Focusing Sessions: A valuable stakeholder engagement and evaluation design tool.   This session is a demonstration led by Evaluation Project Manager, Christy A. Ballweber, and data2insight founder, Veronica S. Smith.

Data2insight will mock up and walk through the steps for planning and facilitating an engaging and effective focusing session.  We will discuss benefits and limitations of those sessions, and how to secure stakeholder engagement.   You will receive a basic understanding of how a focusing session works, and a list of techniques and resources to apply in your evaluation practice.  For additional information about this session, click here.
