COEN's July Community of Practice Meeting
Thursday, July 26th, 5:30-7:30 PM
Panera Bread, 640 S. Colorado Blvd
Topic: Evaluation Landscape in Colorado
Facilitator: Liz Bowling (Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment)
These meetings are informal, with a specific topic, facilitator, and practice-building purpose to guide discussion. They are intended to let you share with and learn from your colleagues and grow in the profession.
From 5:30 to 6:00 we will gather, introduce ourselves, and get coffee or dinner at the counter if you wish.
At 6:00 we'll start our program: Evaluation Landscape in Colorado
The American Evaluation Association has recently created a set of evaluator competencies in five domains: professional practice, methodology, context, planning and management, and interpersonal. It is important that all evaluators are aware of and possess the skills listed. Let’s explore what the evaluation landscape looks like currently in Denver and the surrounding area. COEN members will identify strengths and areas of opportunity within these competencies, identify and share strategies to grow skills, and have a better understanding of how to build the overall evaluation capacity in Denver.
This session is for all experience levels and all types of evaluators. Please bring your questions and insights to share from your own evaluation experience. Also bring a colleague!
We'll be mixing it up in terms of venues and types of Community of Practice events, so keep an eye on our announcements. Would you like to facilitate a future meeting? Reach out to us with your idea at Colo.Eval.Network@gmail.com and let's chat.
