Hello aea365-ers and #Eval15 conference goers! I’m Sheila B Robinson, aea365’s Lead Curator, sometimes Saturday contributor, and this week…conference-goer!
Lesson Learned: The Twittersphere is lighting up with #Eval15 happenings!
Earlier this week on aea365 Stewart Donaldson, our 2015 AEA president, shared conference registration data with us. Now, he’s tweeted the following update:
Approximately 5000 now registered for AEA15 onsite or online! Opening Ceremony 3:15pm central #eval15

Tom Archibald challenged us to find examples of evaluative thinking at the conference, and sure enough, it’s happening!

Innovation Network is conducting a crowdsourced mini-study on evaluation approaches at the vendors’ exhibit, and here’s what they are learning:
Jayne Corso invited you to use hashtag #Eval15 to stay up-to-date with conference updates and engage in conversations with other attendees, and indeed you are:
“Get your key evaluation questions down to a manageable number or you’ll kill a kangaroo.” Great stories from Patricia Rogers #eval15

Hot Tip: Jayne mentioned a few tweeters to follow in yesterday’s post. Here are a few more high-flyers in the #eval Twittersphere who are already generously sharing their learning with us this week.
- Brian at Strong Roots @StrongRoots_SK
- Nicole Clark @NicoleClarkLMSW
- Innovation Network @Innonet_Eval
- Kim Firth Leonard @KimFLeonard
- Laura Beals @laurabeals
- Beeta Tahmassebi @btahmassebi
Cool Trick: Tweet your learning if you’re attending the conference in Chicago or virtually and follow #Eval15 along with other tweeters, but don’t spend too much time with your face in the electronic device! After all, the people watching is fun, too!
