Canadian Evaluation Society 2017 Conference

The Canadian Evaluation Society (CES) 2017 Conference, to be held in Vancouver, will focus on innovation, action, and reflection. The latest methods and approaches evaluators are applying in a wide range of contexts will be explored, including the ways in which evaluators are incorporating reflection into practice.

The theme of this year’s conference is “Facing Forward: Innovation, Action, and Reflection”, a theme meant to engage both internal and external evaluators in exploring the different ways to think about their role and how they conduct evaluations. The new and emerging demands faced by evaluators in an era of social media, economic challenges, systems thinking, globalization, and other emerging trends will be discussed.

For information about the keynote speakers and plenary panelists, please visit the CES 2017 website. CHÉOS is a Silver Sponsor of this year’s event.
