Hello Loyal aea365 readers! I’m Sheila B Robinson, aea365’s Lead Curator and sometimes Saturday contributor with one question for you: What is it that YOU would like to read about on this blog?
I originally posted this blog about a year ago and we received some excellent responses from readers. I then shared these responses in a subsequent post and we received blog articles on some of the suggested topics from authors willing to answer the call. Here we go with some minor updates to reflect the times:
Lesson Learned: AEA365 has been going steadily since January 1, 2010 with 2150+ contributions from hundreds of evaluators across the globe. We accept individual submissions at firstname.lastname@example.org on a rolling basis, along with inquiries about sponsored or themed weeks. Posts are about any and all evaluation-related topics, and anyone with something to share with fellow evaluators is welcome to contribute! If you are interested in sharing a tip, please be sure to check out our contribution guidelines here.
2015 was the International Year of Evaluation. The aim of designating 2015 as the International Year of Evaluation is to advocate and promote evaluation and evidence-based policy making at international, regional, national and local levels. EvalPartners is also facilitating a consultation to generate ideas for the Global Evaluation Agenda for 2016-2020. The Global Evaluation Agenda will guide mainstreaming evaluation at national level and global development agenda.
As a key learning tool for evaluation, aea365 can also be a fabulous vehicle for promoting evaluation and evidence-based policy. With that in mind, we would like to include your voice as we head into the new year as our aea365 team considers inviting authors and groups to contribute.
Hot Tip: Let’s crowdsource some ideas for aea365 in 2016 and make it the best year ever.
