Keep Learning Top of Mind


During Evaluation 2017, attendees will explore four ways that the evaluation community can learn from evaluation to create better practice and outcomes. Evaluation is dependent on learning from each other and putting theory into action. Given the focus on learning, AEA President Kathy Newcomer encourages all who submit proposals to think creatively and design innovative learning experiences for attendees. Learn more about the 2017 theme.

How to Submit a Proposal

In 2017, the conference will again host a dynamic variety of presentations to meet the diverse needs of the AEA members. Presentation types include panel discussions, expert lectures, roundtables, skill building workshops, ignite sessions, birds of a feather gatherings, and a new flexible session type that allows for experiential learning.
