The AB/NWT Chapter of the Canadian Evaluation Society is seeking expressions of interest (EOI) for facilitators to deliver professional development events to its members and other interested participants. Questions? [email protected]

If you are interested in offering more than one session, please submit a separate application for each.

DETAILS

We are seeking facilitators to offer sessions that are of interest to people who work in the evaluation field. Sessions could be focused on evaluation, or on topics relevant to knowledge workers in general, such as communication, change management or cultural competency. Take a look at the competencies for Canadian evaluators to get an idea of our areas of interest.

At this time, CES AB/NWT is offering online sessions only. Sessions are delivered in real time on the CES AB/NWT Zoom account. We will consider in-person opportunities once public health orders allow. 

You do not need to be a resident of Alberta or NWT to submit an EOI.

Please provide a brief and clear description of your proposed session. Participants tend to be particularly interested in hands-on learning experiences and take-aways applicable to their practice, but we are open to considering other types of sessions. We aim to let you know within a month if we want to move ahead with your EOI. 

As part of booking a session, the facilitator and CES representative will sign a contractual agreement.
