My name is Susan Kistler and I am the Executive Director of the American Evaluation Association. I contribute each Saturday’s post to aea365.
AEA365 was and is an experiment – it is a work in progress. Since January 1, 2010 when we started, we’ve evolved the format, dropped ‘blog’ from the name (having discovered that the word blog frightened off a few potential authors), and updated the functionality. So far, over 200 people have contributed to aea365 and we’re approaching 1000 subscribers (we’ll have a little surprise for the 1000th person…stay tuned). Here are a few new ways to get the most out of aea365 and, if you have suggestions for others, or functionality you would like to see, please send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hot Tip – Use Your Mobile Device: As of this month, the aea365 website is now optimized for android and iphone! I’ve tried it out on both and it’s looking great – and much easier to read and find items of interest. If you are receiving aea365 via email, go to http://aea365.org/blog/ on your phone to check out the updated format.
Hot Tip – Get a Preview of Evaluation 2010: Attending AEA’s Annual Conference this November in San Antonio? Lots of our posts are related to conference content and we’ve tagged them with the keyword ‘conference’. A quick search of the word ‘conference’ brings up a whole host of selections that you can use to preview sessions. http://aea365.org/blog/?s=conference&submit=Go
Hot Tip – Save Keyword Searches: Seeking guidance on a particular topic? Use the search function at http://aea365.org/blog/ to find posts on that target topic and then copy the URL as I did for my conference search and you have a ready way to access all posts on that topic. Know what’s extra cool? You can save that link to your bookmarks or favorites and when you access it in the future, it will automatically update as new content is added related to the search term.
