Evaluation 2013 - A Call for Proposals

Fitzpatrick.2

Dear Colleagues,

 

Yes, it's time to prepare for the Evaluation 2013 conference already! A few weeks ago you received a Call for Proposals asking for you to begin thinking about papers or panels you may want to submit by March 15th. The 27th annual AEA conference will be in Washington, DC, from October 16th through 19th.

 

My theme for the 2013 conference is "Evaluation Practice in the Early 21st Century." We are developing four plenary sessions and quite a few Presidential Strand sessions around this theme. One of the things we want to do with the theme is learn about "the big tent" of evaluation: What do people who work in different disciplines or different settings do in the name of evaluation?

 

At the conference, we will hear from leaders in medicine talking about the development of checklists to guide medical practice in hospitals. They will describe their efforts to stimulate use and their involvement of stakeholders to achieve it. Similarly, we will hear from leaders in policy analysis describing their work and how it is similar to and different from evaluation. Evaluators in South Africa and Mexico will describe their evaluation work and how their different contexts influence the nature of their evaluation work. Closer to home, we will hear from John Easton, the director of the Institute of Education Sciences, on what's happening in educational evaluation and his goals for the future.

 

Think about what you might do around this theme. At AEA, we often talk about evaluations we have conducted, but we rarely study ourselves. We need to have a better sense of what is happening in evaluation and I think we can do that by hearing from you as well as from leaders in different settings. This is an opportunity for you to collect some data - through interviews, surveys, or review of existing data - to describe what occurs under the label of evaluation in your organization or others. Step back from the study you're doing now and think about how evaluation in your agency or field has changed over the last 10 or 20 years or how evaluation differs across different agencies in your state or region. What types of questions do these evaluations address? What methods are used? How are stakeholders involved? What is the role of the evaluator?

 

I look forward to seeing your proposals and learning more about your work!

 

Sincerely,

Jody

AEA's Values - Walking the Talk with Jenny Jones

Are you familiar with AEA's values statement? What do these values mean to you in your service to AEA and in your own professional work? Each month, we'll be asking a member of the AEA community to contribute her or his own reflections on the Association's values.  

 

AEA's Values Statement

The American Evaluation Association values excellence in evaluation practice, utilization of evaluation findings, and inclusion and diversity in the evaluation community.

 

             i.  We value high quality, ethically defensible, culturally responsive evaluation practices that lead to effective and humane organizations and ultimately to the enhancement of the public good.

             ii. We value high quality, ethically defensible, culturally responsive evaluation practices that contribute to decision-making processes, program improvement, and policy formulation.

            iii. We value a global and international evaluation community and understanding of evaluation practices.

            iv. We value the continual development of evaluation professionals and the development of evaluators from under-represented groups.

             v. We value inclusiveness and diversity, welcoming members at any point in their career, from any context, and representing a range of thought and approaches.

            vi. We value efficient, effective, responsive, transparent, and socially responsible association operations.

 

 


JonesHi, I am Jenny Jones, Associate Professor and Director of the Master of Social Work Program at Florida A & M University, in Tallahassee, FL. I am currently serving my third year on AEA's Board and I previously served as Chair of the Diversity Committee, and member of the Task Force that developed AEA's Statement on Cultural Competence in Evaluation. My involvement in the development of this statement is one of my proud professional accomplishments as an evaluator and as an AEA member.  

 

My professional training as an evaluator began with a Master's program in social work at California State University Long Beach, and was later enhanced and nurtured in my doctoral program at Clark Atlanta University where I met Sarita Davis (who served on my dissertation committee), who introduced me to the real world of evaluation practice and research via AEA. Here I found a home for evaluation practice and applied research.

 

For the past 13 years, I have consulted with and trained numerous social work students (master and doctoral level) and community based organization leaders and their staff on the art and science of evaluation practice for the purpose of capacity building. I have conducted program evaluations with federal government programs and public and private non-profit organizations. It is through these experiences that my commitment to this work is affirmed. As an evaluator, it is my responsibility to practice in a way that is ethically sound, fair, and inclusive of the relevant perspectives and interests of the full range of stakeholders involved. Given this, I am constantly challenged to think critically about context, my approach to the practice of evaluation and how that practice shapes what is evaluated.  

 

The AEA values statement overall challenges me to be responsive to the values of social justice, competence, and the enhancement of public good. To this end, I am committed to producing high quality, ethically defensible, culturally responsive evaluations that lead to effective and humane organizations and ultimately to the enhancement of public good. The values statement encourages me to inspire and motivate my students to be thoughtful in their planning as it relates to evaluation practice and to think inwardly about their own values and social responsibilities, and the values and ethics that drive this discipline. I also encourage organization leaders, when working to build evaluation capacity, to recruit and train staff in effectiveness-based program development, with built-in mechanisms for evaluation; to develop cutting-edge evaluation knowledge and technical skills that will be responsive to their stakeholders and funders; and lastly, to be aware of their responsibility to cultural responsiveness.  

 

I am excited about the practice of evaluation and the commitment to lifelong learning. My membership with AEA provides me an opportunity to meet and work with scholars and practitioners from various disciplines who are committed to evaluation practice; this in part fuels my pursuit of lifelong learning! 

Policy Watch - Looking Forward 

From Cheryl Oros, Consultant to the Evaluation Policy Task Force

 

OrosI am excited to be serving as the Evaluation Policy Task Force's (EPTF) new consultant, continuing on the exhaustive efforts of George Grob. I look forward to working with you. As I check in, I find lots of new things happening and hope many of you will be a part of them.

 

Major Priorities

The EPTF will promote high-quality evaluations and their use in federal decision-making by expanding on the Evaluation Roadmap for a More Effective Government and commenting on rules, regulations and legislation from the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB), agencies and Congress. The EPTF focuses on evaluation policies, i.e., definitions, requirements, methods, implementation, ethics, budgets and resources for evaluation. With the implementation of the new Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) 2010, there may be "reachable moments" as federal departments work to improve their performance and evaluation systems. If you know staff who are interested in learning more about evaluation and how it can aid their efforts, please let us know. The EPTF also looks to recognize opportunities at the state and international level to enhance policy making and use of evaluations.

 

Meet Your Congressional Members at AEA this year

EPTF will work with Washington Evaluators to support meeting with congressional members during the AEA conference in Washington, DC by developing materials to be approved by the AEA Board for distribution during these visits. The network you help build will be invaluable in facilitating evaluation advocacy.

 

International Partnership to Enhance Evaluation Practice and Use

AEA and the EPTF are working with EvalPartners and the International Organization for Cooperation in Evaluation (the international network of professional evaluation organizations) in planning the International Year of Evaluation in 2015. Planning is underway to promote evaluative thinking among decision makers and the use of results in national decision-making; learn more at www.mymande.org. Sessions on the effort will be held at the AEA conference in October.

 

OMB guidance and Call for Comments

OMB has just issued "Proposed Uniform Guidance: Cost Principles, Audit, and Administrative Requirements for Federal Awards." AEA is not taking a position, but you are welcome to comment on your own at http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2013/02/01/proposal-better-management-federal-grants.

 

Actions You Can Take to Get Involved

Join in understanding that the success of the EPTF's advocacy effort is not reliant on just a task force/consultant, but on YOU - the community of dedicated evaluation professionals who want their work to significantly contribute to the lives of citizens by supplying decision-makers at all levels with the results they need to thoroughly understand, critically and scientifically investigate, and thereby enhance government programs. Here's what you can do immediately to get involved:

AEA's 2012 Marcia Guttentag Promising New Evaluator Award

The American Evaluation Association honored four individuals and one group at its 2012 Awards Luncheon in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Honored this year were recipients in five categories involved with cutting-edge evaluation/research initiatives that have impacted citizens around the world. We'll spotlight each award in upcoming issues, and today extend our congratulations to Tarek Azzam. 

  • Tarek Azzam, Assistant Professor, Claremont Graduate University
     
    2012 Marcia Guttentag Promising New Evaluator Award

AzzamA young researcher, gifted teacher, published author, and popular presenter, Azzam has been recognized for having great influence so early in his career. At just five years post graduate school, Azzam has been involved in more than 20 evaluation projects in education, health and prevention, international development and capacity building. He has authored more than 10 published papers that focus on the development of new methods suited for real world evaluations. These methods attempt to address some of the logistical, political, and technical challenges that evaluators commonly face. His work aims to improve the rigor and credibility of evaluations and to increase their potential impact on programs and policies. Azzam has been involved in multiple projects that have included the evaluation of student retention programs at the K-12 and university levels, Science Technology Engineering and Math education programs, pregnancy prevention programs, children's health programs, and international development efforts for the Rockefeller and Packard Foundations.

Face of AEA - Meet Bob Tornberg

AEA's more than 7,800 members worldwide represent a range of backgrounds, specialties and interest areas. Join us as we profile a different member each month via a short Question and Answer exchange. This month's profile spotlights Bob Tornberg, a relative newcomer to the field with four decades of professional experience, a regular attendee of AEA's annual conference and a member of  AEA's Independent Consulting and  PreK-12 Educational Evaluation Topical Interest Groups (TIGs).

 

Tornberg

Name: Robert E. (Bob) Tornberg

Affiliation: Currently working on my Ph.D. dissertation at the University of Minnesota and planning to establish a consulting business within the next year.

Degrees: B.A. (history); B.H.L. (Bachelor of Hebrew Letters); M.A.H.E. (MA in Hebrew Education); Doctor of Jewish Religious Education

Joined AEA: 2008

 

Why do you choose to work in the field of evaluation?

"I have had a 38-year career in Jewish education, heading several synagogue education programs and full-day Jewish day schools. As part of my Ph.D. coursework at the University of Minnesota, I was required to enroll in a course entitled Introduction to Program Evaluation. I was fortunate enough to have Jean King as my professor. Because of her amazing teaching, her enthusiasm for evaluation, and the intellectual stimulation of the field, I fell in love with program evaluation. I must admit that NO ONE was more surprised than I. So, based on this excitement, I added a minor in evaluation studies to my doctoral work.

 

"As part of my student experience, I had the opportunity to be involved in several evaluation projects, including heading an evaluation for a children's room in a museum. Through this, I came to understand that I truly enjoyed using formal research methods to improve programs. I saw great value in this.

 

"My wife and I are currently in the process of moving to Syracuse, NY to be near our grandchildren. My plan is to establish an independent consulting business. The scope of my practice will include program evaluation in Jewish educational settings, work in other religious, independent and public schools, non-profit organizations, and museums."

 

Why do you belong to AEA?

"While still a student working toward my M.A. in Jewish education, I joined the national professional organization of Jewish educators. I immediately got to know some wonderful people who became my mentors and from whom I still learn to this day. Early on, I also volunteered for committees and became enmeshed in the work of the organization. Fourteen years later, I found myself elected president of this national group as well as regularly mentoring others newer to the field. This involvement with my profession on a broad basis may have been one of the smartest things I ever did to advance my learning and development as a professional.

 

"Following this pattern, I joined AEA in 2008. I hope to develop the same kind of relationships, find mentors in the field, and give my experience and energy back to the organization and my colleagues!"

 

What advice would you give to those new to the field?

"As a "newbie" myself, it feels presumptuous to give advice to others. But, I consider it essential to my own growth to be involved in AEA - to learn my craft and to help make a difference beyond my own day-to-day evaluation work. I would urge others to do the same!"

eLearning Update - What to Do if You Miss a Webinar 

From Stephanie Evergreen, AEA's eLearning Initiatives Director  

Evergreen 

Despite our best intentions to attend every webinar we sign up for, sometimes something drags us away. We know. It's common all across webinar land. In fact, an assessment of attendance rates for our 2012 Coffee Break webinars shows that, of those who sign up, about 57% actually make it to the webinar session.

 

Our discussions with other organizations have shown that this figure is actually slightly higher than the average. Cool!

 

Webinar AttendanceSo if you happen to miss a webinar, first know that you are not alone. Secondly, head over to our Webinars eLibrary to locate the recording of the webinar and any related handouts. Better yet, just check your email inbox. All who register for a webinar receive an email with a link to the recording, whether or not they actually make it to the session.

Social Media: Exploring Opportunities for Improving AEA's Facebook Page

GoldenHello friends! My name is Kate Golden and I am the curator of AEA's Facebook page. Our Facebook page is one of AEA's four social media outlets which also include our LinkedIn page, our listserv (EvalTalk) and our Twitter feed. To date, AEA's Facebook page has evolved to involve four functions, acting as a:

  1. Social media anchor - We post popular or unique content from AEA's other social media outlets (e.g. Twitter, EvalTalk and LinkedIn) to encourage users to access those outlets as well
  2. Networking tool - We share relevant content from other evaluation-focused organizations to broaden our collective knowledge of what's happening in evaluation
  3. Link to AEA's vast array of resources - AEA has a dynamic and far-reaching archive of materials that we link to (including but not limited to 365 blog posts, eLibrary materials, and archived webinars) to ensure that Facebook followers know what's available on eval.org
  4. Archive of AEA's history - We add events, such as our annual conference, as milestones to our timeline to document the organization's past 

In the past month, our total number of followers has grown to 2,483 individuals (and counting!). During this time, the greatest overall impact our page had involved 1,719 individuals from 20 different countries reaching AEA's page and 67 individuals engaged with our content. Posts that generated the most engagement (individuals commenting, liking or sharing content) included:

  1. AEA's call for proposals for the Evaluation 2013 conference in Washington DC
  2. Elissa Schloesser's AEA 365 post on 5 Steps for Translating Evaluation Findings into Infographics
  3. A link to AEA's CoffeeBreak webinar series
  4. A call for feedback form on how to improve our use of Facebook
  5. Stephanie Evergreen's webinar on Ignite presentations

There is so much potential here! Our focus is to improve the use of Facebook's platform without duplicating our efforts elsewhere. We also recognize that Facebook's ranking algorithm impacts how our posts are received and so we're experimenting with how to post more effectively with that challenge. If you have a Facebook account, please "like" AEA's page and if you have ideas on how to leverage this unique social media opportunity more effectively, we'd love to hear them!

Potent Presentations - Utilize at Your Next Evaluation Dissemination Meeting
From Stephanie Evergreen, Potent Presentations Initiative Coordinator
 
Potent Presentations

p2i guidance around crafting a presentation message is useful outside of the annual conference, too. Think about how you can apply it to your next evaluation dissemination meeting. Here are two pieces of the p2i Messaging Model than can translate to other presentation settings:

  • Try to distill your main take-home message into 6 words. This is your Bottom Line.
  • Develop a structure for the rest of your explanatory material. Maybe it is a numbered list like 5 main findings + 2 recommendations. Maybe it is a metaphor like Crawl, Walk, Run, Fly. Maybe it is a volley between a set of pros and a set of cons. Choose whatever fits your data, just give it a structure to your Explanation.
  • Remember to start by telling your audience your Bottom Line and your chosen Explanation structure and refer back to both throughout your talk.

The p2i Messaging Model handout includes the Bottom Line and the Explanation, plus how to time different parts of your talk.

Mobile Learning Environment (MoLE) Project: A Global Technology Initiative

HodgesAEA member Jacob Hodges is author of a new ebook, Mobile Learning Environment (MoLE) Project: A Global Technology Initiative published by eBookpartnership.com and available on Amazon.

 

From the Publisher's Site:

"The Mobile Learning Environment (MoLE) Project: A Global Technology Initiative was a two-year project that included e-Learning and medical professionals from academia, commercial, government and NGO representing 24 countries from five continents. It focused on providing training/education in areas with low-bandwidth and limited internet connectivity and infrastructure.

This eBook provides readers with:

  • a comprehensive education and training app that contains six major content categories (i.e., learning, reference library, standards, networking, mission tools, and mission pack);
  • access to, and use of, the Mobile Learning Environment (MoLE) Project source code for iOS and Android devices, and the online content catalogue repository to create, share and develop apps;
  • the data collection and evaluation strategy that incorporated social responsibility, ethical practices, solid research approaches and professional standards;
  • an in-depth review of the evaluation finding on the accessibility, effectiveness, satisfaction/self-efficacy, utility and usefulness of mobile technologies as a learning medium; and
  • conclusions on what made the app learner centered (i.e., built on the skills and knowledge of the individual/teams), knowledge centered (i.e., providing educational content that is factually sound), and community centered (i.e., promoted the sharing of knowledge and collaboration).

From the Author:

"The Mobile Learning Environment (MoLE) Project: A Global Technology Initiative was written to show how mobile applications can provide formal, informal or on-demand education and training anywhere and at any time. It reflects the extensive work conducted by the 24-nation collaborative research, development, testing and evaluation team to develop a training asset that is user, knowledge and community centered."

 

 

About the Author:

Jacob Hodges has over 40 years of experience in academia, defense and the commercial sector. He is a member of the American Evaluation Association and former Chair of the Research, Technology and Development (RT&D) Topical Interest Group. He is a Senior Member of the American Society for Quality and currently works as an independent consultant and Learning, Education and Training Advisor. Hodges instigated the MoLE Project, provided program management and technical support to the project team, and was responsible for the Human Research Protocol requirements. He has created a blog that contains the book's Preface at: http://wp.me/p2ZlwE-4o, which also links to an "Overview of the Mobile Learning Environment (MoLE) Project" on Slideshare.

Evaluation 2013: Call for Proposals

DCThe American Evaluation Association invites evaluators from around the world, working in any context, to share their knowledge and expertise by submitting a proposal to present at Evaluation 2013. AEA welcomes proposals on topics that span the breadth and depth of the field and in particular on those focusing on the conference theme of Evaluation Practice in the Early 21st Century.
  
Evaluation 2013 will be held October 16-19 in Washington, DC, with professional development workshops offered October 14-16 and October 20. Join 2800 attendees for 650 sessions at the 27th annual conference of AEA.
  

As you prepare your proposals for October's AEA annual conference, the AEA Ethics Working Group encourages you to address ethical issues in your presentations. This could mean focusing your paper, panel, think tank, or other session on an ethical challenge you faced in your evaluation practice, or it could mean highlighting ethics within the context of another evaluation topic. In any case, we hope that as you envision evaluation practice in the 21st century and your sessions that present the cutting edge of evaluation practice, ethics will be at the forefront. Submission forms may be found online on the Evaluation 2013 website and all proposals are due on or before Friday, March 15.

 

The Ethics Working Group is scheming about ways to engage AEA members in a dialogue around ethics, so keep your eyes open for opportunities to share and learn more. Members of the Ethics Working Group include Leslie Goodyear (chair), Mike Morris and Syd King. If you have ideas for engaging members around ethical issues, we'd love to hear from you! Share them with Leslie at [email protected].

  
Volunteer Opportunity - Evaluation Policy Task Force
Evaluation Policy Task Force - The AEA Evaluation Policy Task Force (EPTF) is seeking letters of interest from possible new members. The EPTF focuses on guiding the association's policy-influencing processes in the United States federal sector. EPTF members should preferably have experience with evaluation policies and practices in the United States government, or have a strong background of research and publication on evaluation policy. Non-federal level evaluators should not feel that they are excluded, as we value in particular state-level and international perspectives on policy-influencing and pursue opportunities in these arenas as well when feasible and when they intersect with US federal-level policy-making. The EPTF is a very active task force, meeting monthly via conference call with extensive email exchange in between calls, often responding to short turnarounds for vetting of draft documents. If you are interested in possibly serving on the EPTF, please send a letter of interest by Monday, March 11, to AEA Executive Director Susan Kistler at [email protected]. In the letter, indicate (1) your experience with evaluation policies and practices or your history of research and publications on this topic, (2) at least one key area where you believe there are opportunities for improvement of government evaluation policy and why improvement is needed, and (3) your commitment to make yourself available for monthly phone and ongoing email communication for a three year term. The EPTF issued this call once before, yet ultimately ended up awaiting the results of a Board-directed evaluation of the EPTF as well as confirmation of the Task Force's plan for the coming year. If you have submitted a letter of interest in the past, we encourage you to consider resubmitting.
Volunteer Opportunity - Thought Leaders Working Group
Thought Leaders Working Group - The Thought Leader Forum (TLF) connects thought leaders in our field with AEA members, new and old alike. It is one of many ways we strive to build bridges among members and foster a sense of community. The Thought Leaders Working Group (TLWG) oversees the Forum, identifying, inviting, and supporting Thought Leaders, and moderating and participating in the forum discussions. The TLWG is looking for a new member to join the group to serve 2013-2015. The estimated service obligation for the Thought Leaders Working Group is one conference call per month during November-February, ongoing email exchange throughout the year, and serving as a moderator of the online discussion 1-2 times during the year. Those interested should have a basic understanding of the Forum and be interested in fostering discussion within our community of practice. If interested, send an email by Monday, March 11, to [email protected] with your name, reason for volunteering, and your favorite Forum discussion to date, and a recommendation for one person you would like to see as a Thought Leader on the Forum.
