The Canadian Evaluation Society Ontario Chapter (CES-ON) is committed to offering professional development opportunities in support of our mission, which is that:
Professional development workshops are offered throughout the year to engage Evaluators and CES-Ontario members across Ontario, and to achieve this standard of excellence in evaluation. CES Members receive a 25% discount on all professional development opportunities.
All training opportunities are delivered online through the Zoom platform.
We offer our introductory Essential Skills Series course several times each year.
We also offer intermediate/advanced level courses on an ongoing basis. In 2023, we will be offering The Art and Science of Producing Effective Infographics, and other topics to be rolled out throughout the year. We have also surveyed our membership for topics that are relevant to their professional development needs, and will be designing future courses based on their feedback.
In 2017-2022, we offered Principles-Focused Evaluation; Evaluation by Design; Developmental Evaluation; Strategic Project Management; Theory of Change; and Performance Measurement, Culturally Responsive Evaluation Training, and Rapid Impact Evaluation, and Designing Dashboards.
Certificates of Completion are provided to those who fully complete any of our workshops.
