Calling for Canadian and International Bloggers/Twitter/Podcaster attending CES?

Most of you already know that the call for proposal is out for the Canadian Evaluation Society 2014 annual meeting. Do you know of any Canadian or international evaluation bloggers or twitter users? 

Brian Hoessler (of Strong Roots Consulting) and I are organizing a session to be presented at CES on discussing and showcasing Canadian’s use of social media to the global evaluation community. We‘re looking for collaborators who’d be interested in sharing their experiences and co-developing a session on blogging, twitter, podcasting, or other social media activities. The tentative foci are to 1) take stock of the different purposes evaluators use social media  and 2) profile different ways  evaluators are leveraging social media to connect across sectors and boundaries.

Most recently Chris Lysy, Ann Emery, Sheila Robinson, and Susan Kistler presented a Think Tank session at AEA13 that was a hit. http://www.slideshare.net/InnoNet_Eval/evaluation-blogging-27544071

Indeed, we welcome collaborations and partnership with our American and international colleagues as it offers us the chance to compare and contrast the Canadian context to the broader international landscape. 

So… might you or any one you know be interested in this? Hit me up on twitter  @chiyanlam or via the Contact Me page. Let’s talk!
