Call for online workshop proposals

AES is seeking expressions of interest from facilitators to deliver new online workshops. These workshops are to not only complement but broaden our existing program by aligning more directly to the domains and competencies listed in the Evaluators Professional Learning Competency Framework

Expressions of interest are currently closed 

We are seeking submissions of full-day and half-day workshops addressing specific topics * see listing below. Full-day workshops are split over two sessions of 3 hours each, usually a week apart. Half-day workshops are either one session of 3 hours or split over 2 sessions of 90 minutes each, usually a week apart.

Workshops should be designed using adult learning principles and be interactive to maximise participant learning.

Workshops can be designed for those who are new to evaluation or for more advanced practitioners. Presenters should make clear which level of expertise the workshop is aimed towards; beginner, intermediate, advanced, or all three.

When submitting your workshop proposal please ensure you address innovative theoretical and practice knowledge and skills with consideration to workshop participants’ level of experience. 

Workshop content should focus on developing knowledge, understanding and competencies, evaluation techniques and practices. You will be asked to provide detail on how your workshop aligns to the Evaluators Professional Learning Competency Framework.

Online workshops are delivered using the Zoom meeting platform (AES owns a business account).

Facilitators must be confident using Zoom and providing accessible resources that can be shared with participants. 

Note: You may submit more than one proposal.

flat rate of AUD$2,000 (+ GST) all-inclusive per workshop for up to 18 participants flat rate of AUD$3,000 (+ GST) all-inclusive per workshop for 19–25 participants
