Curator Note: I wrote this post a couple of years ago and we’ve since updated our website and the post got a bad case of link rot! ? This version is updated with the current links!
Happy Summer AEA365ers! I’m Sheila B Robinson, AEA365’s Lead Curator and sometimes Saturday contributor with some great summer learning opportunities for evaluators.
Lesson Learned: Summer is a great time to reset, recharge and renew — on the beach, the golf course, or in your own backyard. It’s also a great time to expand your evaluation horizons with some new knowledge and know-how.
Here are some great opportunities for the dog days of summer, most of which are available online, so if you’re learning in your jammies, your jeans, sweatpants or a swimsuit, no one will be the wiser!
