Emerging Evaluators - Today's Experience and Connections

Seminar | Online

About the Event

Students and Emerging Evaluators today are entering a fast-paced workplace environment, where expectations of deliverables are high. As a career in evaluation becomes more prominent in the for-profit and non-profit sectors, it is important to reflect on the experiences new evaluators face, and continue to foster the conditions of continuous learning. The Canadian Evaluation Society has developed key strategies which allows for evaluators to flourish in this environment - from their mentoring initiative, further learning opportunities and courses, to an ultimate goal of earning the Credentialed Evaluator designation. We will review the current experience of Emerging Evaluators in Canada and internationally, identifying key strategies and opportunities to keep emerging evaluators further engaged.
