Reading with GSNE

Join the GSNE TIG to read and discuss various books, articles, and resources about evaluation based on your interests. 

Sign up here. If you have any questions, reach out to Maddison Staszkiewicz at 

The GSNE TIG hosts a monthly virtual reading club, Reading with GSNE, reading about evaluation from books, journals, and more. Engage with other evaluators in discussions on Twitter throughout the month as you work through the selected reading and expand your practice during the live discussions at the end of the month. Participants are asked to vote on the selection for the next month.

Reading with GSNE is a responsive initiative that will grow and change depending on feedback from participants. We'd love to have you join us! View the previous months below.


April 2021

Join us April 8, 2021 at 6 pm EST to discuss our next journal selection. This session will be facilitated by Zach Tilton, one of our members and the AEA Representative to EvalYouth.

2021 Kick Off


January 2021

We met in January to discuss what we hope to achieve as a group this year. The group favored less frequent meetings, so we will meet on a bi-monthly basis, schedule permitting. Journal articles were favored over books, and accessibility (access to materials and ensuring cost was not a barrier) is important for participation.

November 2020

Join us and author Chris Lysy to discuss Evaluation Illustrated on Tuesday, November 17th.

Enhancing the Effectiveness of Logic Models

September 2020

In our second month, we read a journal article from the American Journal of Evaluation: Enhancing the Effectiveness of Logic Models. This selection is shorter than a book, and as AEA members, access is included as part of membership. Thank you to all that participated!

Edited by: Kylie Hutchinson 

August 2020

In the inaugural book club, we read Evaluation Failures. During the live discussion, we talked about what we found to be themes or main takeaway points from the book and how it related to our own evaluation work.
