ESIP 2013 Summer Meeting Decisions Workshop & Breakout Session

From Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP)

Half-Day Evaluation Workshop

Building on the successful full day workshop in January 2013, this half-day version will help the attendee understand the concepts underlying proposal formation and evaluation.

Evaluation Discussion Roundtable

Building on newly acquired knowledge by Evaluation Workshop participants and others, this session will be a facilitated roundtable designed to share attendees' experiences in project, program and organizational evaluation. Session attendees are invited to contribute their Evaluation stories using a 3-4 minute, 3-slide summary:

  • Slide 1 - Program/Project Description Including What Was Being Assessed
  • Slide 2 - Evaluation Approach/Methodology Used (can be more than 1 approach/methodology)
  • Slide 3 - Results & Impact of Evaluation

The Evaluation stories do not have to be the result of a formal evaluation, rather, they can be informally generated analyses. The results of this session will be captured and shared in the ESIP Commons for the community to consult. To share your project's evaluation story, please email it to aprados at umbc dot edu.

Breakout Session Leaders: Ana Prados & Carol Meyer
