NWT Evaluation Symposium in collaboration with Dedats’eetsaa: the Tłı̨chǫ Research & Training Institute
The NWT Evaluation Symposium will be a two-day event held in and around Yellowknife from May 31 – June 1, 2018.
The Alberta/NWT Chapter of CES, in collaboration with Dedats’eetsaa: the Tłı̨chǫ Research & Training Institute of the Tłı̨chǫ Government, is hosting a unique post-conference symposium to promote work that is being done by Indigenous governments and communities, or by non-Indigenous evaluators in partnership with Indigenous governments and communities. The NWT Evaluation Symposium will highlight methodologies and approaches for evaluation of land-based programming, which is an emerging area of focus in the NWT.
Program Schedule (program details will be available in April):
- The first day will follow a traditional conference format. Program highlights will include: a keynote address on decolonizing evaluation by Dr. Nicole Bowman (Munsee-Mohican); a panel on Indigenous approaches to evaluation featuring Indigenous evaluators from around the world; and breakout sessions and poster presentations exploring themes such as community-based research, collaboration, knowledge translation, and decolonization, with a particular emphasis on land-based programming.
- The second day, which will be hosted by Dedats’eetsaa: the Tłı̨chǫ Research & Training Institute of the Tłı̨chǫ Government, will be held outside of Yellowknife.
