We are pleased to announce that the next EES Connections issue will be Special Edition about emerging evaluators.
This is the first opportunity to showcase the work of emerging evaluators (and the new TWG) within EES as well as towards the outside. In everything we do, we will always aim at producing the best possible quality. But particularly in this instance, we would like to “surprise” our colleagues with a Connections issue of outstanding quality.
We invite you to send us your proposed articles by the 3rd of March 2015.
You can produce articles on different topics related to emerging evaluators, such as:
1. Present your curriculum or your work as an emerging evaluator: What brought you to the field of evaluation? What are you doing, what is your preoccupation about evaluation (practitioner, commissioner, …)? What areas of evaluation most interest you and why? How do you think you can contribute to better a better use of evaluation for organizational learning and continuous improvement of projects, programs or policies? What could an organization like EES do in order to better serve the interest of young/new (i.e. "emerging") evaluators?
2. Present your work as a researcher in evaluation: Could you present and describe your research project? What is your research unit and is it specialised in evaluation? What are the challenges of leading a research project in/about evaluation? What could an organization like EES do in order to better serve the interest of young/new (i.e. "emerging") researchers interested in evaluation?
3. Present your training programme in evaluation: What is the name and the focus of your training programme in evaluation? Why did you choose to pursue this training? What is its content? What are your projects afterward and how would you implement what you’ve learned? What could an organization like EES do in order to better serve the interest of young/new (i.e. "emerging") evaluators like students in evaluation?
4. Present evaluation initiatives or evaluation related initiatives that you know, led by emerging evaluators: What is the aim of the initiative? Where does it take place? When did it start, and for what reason? What is its content? What could an organization like EES do in order to support the kind of initiative you present?
These topics (and questions) are indicative, meaning that we will welcome any suggestions in case you would like to write about something that is note mentioned in the list - as long as your article proposition concerns emerging evaluators.
