AEA Evaluation 2018 Proposals

We are looking forward to connecting with SCEA members and other AEA local affiliates this fall at the American Evaluation Association (AEA) Evaluation 2018 Conference. This year, the conference will take place in Cleveland, Ohio on October 31 – November 3. The theme for this year’s conference is “Speaking Truth to Power.”

Proposals are due Thursday, March 15. Submission information can be found here.

Stay tuned for details on SCEA networking activities at Evaluation 2018!




Share your Data Viz Techniques with SCEA!

We are looking for a few people to give short presentations on different aspects of data visualization. Are you interested?

The presentation can be about a visualization tool you use, a report you have completed, a technique you are fond of, an evaluation you are currently doing, or anything else that relates to data visualization. This is a great opportunity to reuse an existing presentation from a conference or previous talk.

If you are interested, post a comment here or contact Alana Kinarsky by Sunday, Feb 25 with a few sentences about your presentation idea. Your proposed presentation does not need to be fully developed, we can work with you to finalize the idea in the coming weeks. Once we have heard back from everyone, we will pick speakers and topics to ensure a cohesive panel.

The event will take place at a co-working space in Hollywood, but we have not yet finalized the date. We hope to have the event details finalized by the end of February so we have plenty of time to advertise to our network.

We look forward to seeing some new data visualization ideas!
