STEM TIG's Evaluation 2019 Program Track

The American Evaluation Association is gearing up for Evaluation 2019. AEA’s annual conference, with the 2019 theme Paths to the Future of Evaluationis November 13-16, 2019 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The STEM Education and Workforce Training Topical Interest Group (TIG) of the American Evaluation Association will feature STEM educators, researchers, and evaluators. They will present their work, research, or best practices to a global audience of more than 3,000 colleagues, and connect with a thriving group of other STEM evaluation professionals. Stay tuned to hear more about which projects will be featured by the STEM TIG.

Paths to the Future

At Evaluation 2019, we will engage and discuss our rich experience and the contributions of evaluation, our strategies for leadership, and our actions for renewal in the following four areas:

  1. Addressing the key issues our society faces
  2. Applying and innovating methods and practices to evaluate in the context of important societal challenges
  3. Leaving no one behind
  4. Leading through evaluation

Given the focus on leading, AEA President Tessie Tzavaras Catsambas encourages all who submit proposals to think creatively about the future our organization will build. Learn more about the 2019 theme.

STEM TIG’s Theme-Related Interests

Typically, our TIG features strategies for STEM education leadership when evaluating innovative STEM programs, cultural competency in the methods of evaluation, and evaluation of “K to gray” STEM initiatives (including workforce development).

Next year, we encourage you to submit proposals related to these or other areas that discuss, share, and push forward the field and practice of STEM evaluation. Several AEA session types are submitted as intact proposals, with all presenters listed as collaborators. It may be helpful for you to connect with other STEM evaluators to propose a broader, more impactful session that approaches your topic from multiple perspectives.
