#Eval15 Week: Using Twitter to Optimize your Conference Experience

Hi my name is Jayne Corso and I am the Community Manager for AEA. Social media is a great way to interact with other evaluators and gain the most up-to-date information on Evaluation 2015. Try these tips to get the most out of social media and increase engagement with fellow evaluators.

Use the Hashtag: Follow the Evaluation 2015 hashtag #Eval15 to stay up-to-date with conference updates and engage in conversations with other attendees. You can even join the conversation—add #Eval15 to your Evaluation 2015 posts.

Follow Evaluation 2015 Presenters: Find your favorite presenters on social media. Follow them before, during, and after the conference to see their Evaluation 2015 highlights and ask questions about their session or evaluation work. Below are a few examples:

Stephanie Evergreen: @evergreendata

Ann K. Emery: @AnnKEmery

Sheila Robinson: @SheilaBRobinson

Kirk Knestis: @Knestis

Live Tweet: While at Evaluation 2015 live tweet your sessions. This allows you to post bite sized takeaways from your session, share pictures from the event, and make connections while you are in Chicago. Add #Eval15 to your posts so all attendees and non-attendees who are following Evaluation 2015 can see your post and gain a wider prospective on all events at the conference.

Don’t be afraid to reach out to other people on Twitter who are also covering Evaluation 2015! This is where the conference hashtag comes in; just click the hashtag and comment, favorite, and retweet away.

We look forward to seeing you in Chicago!
