Webinars in March 2011: Collaborative, Participatory & Empowerment Evaluation

MARCH MADNESS:  A WEALTH OF WEBINARS AND BLOGS















Mark Your Calendars!

20 Minute WEBINARS

The Collaborative, Participatory, and Empowerment TIG is sponsoring a series of webinars.  For three weeks in March, we’ll offer one webinar each on Collaborative, Participatory, and Empowerment Evaluation.

You need to be a member of AEA to participate in the webinars but anyone can receive the AEA 365 Daily Tips.

Each webinar will define one of the three types of CP&E evaluation, differentiate it from other types of evaluation, explain the underlying theory and how it translates into practice, include resources for learning more, and include time for questions at the end. The short series should be an excellent primer or refresher on CP&E evaluation.  The webinar will consist of 10 minutes of presentation plus time for text-based questions and answers.  Additional follow-up resources will be posted in the AEA virtual library.

1. Empowerment Evaluation will be the first in the series of webinars.  It will be conducted on March 3rd, 2011, from 2:00 PM - 2:20 PM EST

It will be facilitated by Professors David Fetterman, Fetterman & Associates and the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff (formerly Stanford University) and Abraham Wandersman, University of South Carolina, Columbia. 

2. Participatory Evaluation will be the second webinar in the series.  It will be conducted on March 10th, 2011, from 2:00 PM - 2:20 PM EST. 

The facilitators will be Drs. Ann Zukoski, Rainbow Research, Inc., and Mia Luluquisen, Alameda County Public Health Department.

3. Collaborative Evaluation is the final webinar in the series.  It will be held on March 31st, 2011, from 2:00 PM - 2:20 PM EST.

This webinar will be facilitated by Professors Rita Goldfarb O’Sullivan, University of North Carolina, and Liliana Rodríguez-Campos, University of South Florida.

The CP&E Facebook is a success.  Colleagues are posting on it and sharing information - social/academic networking in action.

Please post primarily about collaborative, participatory, and empowerment evaluation, but it is your professional Facebook page – so feel free to engage and use it to connect with our pretty large family of evaluators.
