Event Description

Why choose this course

This is an opportunity for you to engage in a multi-cultural learning environment that allows you to collectively explore how to facilitate multi-stakeholders processes. You critically reflect on the latest thinking around Theory of Change, and learn to use a Theory of Change approach to Strategic Planning. Where possible, it is useful to have two people attend from the same organisation. No prior knowledge in ToC is needed.

What you will learn

Innovative teaching-learning methodologies are used to explore different dynamics and through group work you understand the key concepts of Theory of Change and Strategic Planning. We critically reflect on our assumptions and their effect on influencing change. Applying participatory and other development methodologies you see your project through a Theory of Change lens.
