Closing plenary: Evaluation, un-boxed

Feedback form is now closed.
Now we’ve un-boxed it, it’s time to discuss where to next for evaluation. Keynote speakers, the unconference convenors and experts will share their thoughts on exactly what’s in the box of evaluation, and the tools and skills evaluators need to ensure we stack up into the future. To do this, they’ll look beyond the box to what we can draw from other disciplines, and how can we learn from as well as share with the communities we work with, and what this means for evaluation as a ‘profession’. Stick around for the conversation to create connections and think about how we shape the ever-evolving role of evaluation and evaluators beyond #aes19SYD.
