The CEC is pleased to announce a new webinar series this semester exploring how evaluation and applied research intersect with the largest issues facing society today. During this 7 session series, Dr. Michael Quinn Patton will be looking at key issues such as the nature of systems transformation, the role of evaluation in creating systemic change, lessons learned from the COVID-19 Pandemic, and how evaluation can be used to interpret the 2020 presidential election. This is an invaluable opportunity to hear from a leader in the evaluation field about the most pertinent topics in applied research and evaluation practice.
