Exemplary Evaluations in a Multicultural World:
Learning from Evaluation’s Successes Around the Globe
We, wholeheartedly invite evaluators, evaluation scholars, students, evaluation sponsors, and evaluation users from all around the world to assemble November 9-14, 2015 in Chicago at the annual AEA conference to share and learn from successes of the international discipline and practice of evaluation. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about exemplary evaluations, enabling evaluation environments, evaluation policies, evaluation theories and methods, and research on evaluation from a range of cultures and regions throughout the world. In 2015, we encourage participants to reflect on our practice, and to present examples of success and challenges to contribute to the goal of highlighting exemplary evaluations conducted in countries at all points along the development continuum. And, we look to explore what facilitates exemplary evaluations—what are the enabling factors, actions, and drivers of success?
