H-PEA Conference Proposal Submission Form 2020
Notice to all proposal submitters: We will very likely host our 2020 H-PEA conference as a virtual conference. Please be prepared to present your session online. The Conference Planning Committee is also considering options such as asking some presenters to pre-record sessions and use the conference time for in-depth discussion and interaction.


Since 2005, the Hawai'i-Pacific Evaluation Association (H-PEA) has provided opportunities for evaluators and those interested in evaluation to share with and learn from each other. H-PEA invites you to participate in one or more of the following opportunities at the conference (Friday, October 9, 8:00 am - 4:00 pm):

- Demonstration
- Skill-building interactive session
- Ignite session
- Paper presentation
- Poster session
- Roundtable
- Symposium

To meet the demand for hands-on presentations, we encourage proposals for Demonstration, Skill-building, and Roundtable presentations.

Those interested should submit the online proposal submission form below that will be peer-reviewed by a conference committee. The review committee will judge proposals on the following points:

a) relevance to the field of evaluation
b) contribution to the knowledge, skill-building, and practice of evaluators
c) alignment to the AEA Evaluator Competencies (http://www.eval.org/d/do/4382)
d) implications for evaluation theory or practice; and
e) value to conference attendees.

Presentation Formats

Demonstration--Demonstrations are formal 30-minute presentations that show how to use or apply an evaluation concept or tool. In this “show and tell” presentation, presenters will walk attendees through a clear, step-by-step explanation of a new concept, process, or tool, how it compares to other evaluation concepts or tools, its strengths and weaknesses, and how it can best be applied.

Skill-building--Skill-building presentations are 60-minutes of teaching of an evaluation skill. It’s a “show, tell, and apply” presentation that teaches a concept, process, or tool, with most of the time dedicated to hands-on activities that let participants practice what’s demonstrated. The session aims to increase one or more of the evaluator competencies defined by AEA (See https://www.eval.org/d/do/4382).

Ignite Session--In Ignite Sessions, the presenter presents 20 slides in 5-minutes. The slides will automatically advance every 15 seconds. Ignite presentations are short but take time to do well. For tips and help, contact Genevieve Manset at gmanset@hawaii.edu our Ignite Session Chair or check out tips and training from the American Evaluation Association at https://www.eval.org/p/cm/ld/&fid=453.

Paper Presentation--Paper presentations are approximately 15 to 20-minutes and are one of two or three presentations in a combined session.

Poster--Poster presentations are approximately 60-minutes during which time you discuss your work in an informal setting with interested attendees “moving from one poster to the next”.

Roundtable--60-minute guided discussions; an opportunity to share a work in progress or an issue/concern relevant to evaluators. Roundtable presentations typically include a short presentation, followed by discussion and feedback. Roundtable presenters should bring targeted questions to pose to others at the table in order to learn from and with those attending. Roundtables are an ideal format for networking and focused discussion on a particular topic, including work-in-progress. The abstract should include the targeted questions to be discussed.

Symposium--a 60-minute session on a particular topic or theme involving prepared remarks, debate, and/or discussion by three or more presenters.
