Whether your feeds need a refresh or you are eager to learn about a new topic, every now and then, we get stumped when looking for a good online read. I have compiled a list of evaluation blogs that I follow as AEA’s Community Manager.
Blogs to keep an eye on:
The Evergreen Data blog, from Stephanie Evergreen, often focuses on data visualization tips and reporting strategies.
Fresh Spectrum from Chris Lysy mixes evaluation tidbits with fun, relatable cartoons.
The BetterEvaluation blog celebrates evaluation practices and programs taking place across the globe.
The Evaluation is an Everyday Activity blog, from Molly Engle at Oregon State University, is always a good one to follow for great insights or views on recent conferences.
Genuine Evaluation, from Patricia J Rogers and E Jane Davidson, focuses on real, practical evaluation practices and strategies. And they often feature podcast!
Ann’s Blog from Ann K. Emery is a great resource for collecting, analyzing, and visualizing data.
