Developmental Evaluation is an exciting approach to evaluation that enables social innovators, policy and program managers, and community leaders to design, monitor, and adapt social change initiatives in complex and uncertain environments.
In this course, you will be introduced to Developmental Evaluation (DE) through an interactive learning approach that models adult learning principles. Using asynchronous and synchronous learning modalities you will explore when, where, and why to use a DE approach, the guiding principles and component elements of DE, and examine real world examples of DE in action individually and in small groups.
You will develop a DE framework to use in your own context. This component of the course will be an exercise in action learning as you work on the design and application of DE concepts, tools, and processes, and share your experiences and reflections across the cohort. You will also have opportunity for one-on-one support and coaching from the course facilitators.
