My name is Sophia Guevara, Program Co-Chair for the Social Network Analysis (SNA) TIG. This week, several evaluation professionals have shared with this blog’s readers their thoughts on social network analysis. With posts discussing logic models to examples of the application of social network analysis on a wide-range of evaluation questions, you’ve hopefully gained a better understanding of it.
Rad Resource: The SNA in Evaluation LinkedIn group. This group provides TIG group members with an opportunity to discuss topics of interest for those utilizing or learning about social network analysis.
Rad Resource: SNA TIG business meeting. If you are thinking of joining the TIG or have already joined and are looking to connect with other evaluation professionals making use of SNA, the business meeting is an excellent place to do just that. The SNA TIG business meeting is held at the annual American Evaluation Association conference.
Rad Resource: AEA public eLibrary and the Coffee Break Archive. There are a variety of resources that can help you learn more about the topic. For example, if you are looking to learn more about the use of SNA related-programs, check out Dr. Geletta’s coffee break webinar focused on importing spreadsheet data into Gephi.
