ATE PI Conference 2020

Monday, October 19 | 1-3:00 p.m. | Virtual

Join this workshop to learn how evaluation can be put to use for the benefit of ATE projects. We will address how evaluations can help projects adjust in uncertain times, how to integrate evaluation findings into your annual report to NSF, and how evaluation can help you think more intentionally about your long-term goals. Additionally, we will share real-world examples of the use and utility of evaluation. This interactive, virtual workshop will include group discussions, question and answer sessions, as well as small group activities. Whether you’re an evaluator, PI, project staff, or grants professional, you’ll leave this workshop with new ideas for how to translate evaluation results into tangible benefits for ATE projects.
