Finding your voice: sharing your knowledge and elevating evaluation through social media, blogging and the Evaluation Journal of Australasia

Feedback form is now closed.
Evaluation is an integral part of the policy making and service delivery ecosystem, with many government agencies and funding bodies requiring evaluations of initiatives that meet certain criteria. But evaluation is diverse and isn’t widely understood. (Ever got blank stares or questions about property valuation when you tell people you’re an evaluator?). Behavioural Insights and Consumer Experience get more traction. So what can we as evaluators do to elevate the discipline? Use social media, blogging and the Evaluation Journal of Australasia to un-box evaluation.

In this session, the editors of the EJA and the AES blog will share their tips on identifying a theme or subject, structuring journal articles and blogs, repurposing content of one type into another, finding your voice, and amplifying it through social media (#EvalTwitter anyone?). We’ll then throw it over to participants to ask questions, pitch ideas and find partners to collaborate with.

This session will provide emerging authors with the opportunity to network with editors and established authors and access support and resources on the ‘how to’ of finding your voice and navigate across platforms. It will also provide existing authors with tips for translating across platforms.

You have a voice and a story to tell, so be strategic in being heard. Participants in previous EJA conference sessions have gone on to contribute journal articles and book reviews, and to peer review for the journal.
