This session is a follow up to the spring social in which we discussed the evaluation standards (from the Joint Committee on Standards for Educational Evaluation). The American Evaluation Association (AEA) Guiding Principles for Evaluators were developed to promote and guide the ethical practice of evaluation. This webinar will provide background and overview of the five overarching principles: systematic inquiry, competence, integrity/honesty, respect for people, and general and public welfare. Participants will have the opportunity to apply the Guiding Principles to a case study and consider how to use them when designing and conducting their own evaluations. Those planning to attend are encouraged to read the Guiding Principles prior to the webinar to ensure lively discussion. http://www.eval.org/publications/guidingprinciples.asp
