When Rick Davies and Jess Dart first authored the Most Significant Change (MSC) User Guide in 2005, they had little idea of its transformative potential for the sector. Fast forward 15 years, and the MSC technique is an essential part of the evaluation toolkit, widely used by aid and development agencies and the social impact sector. The MSC guide has since been translated into 12 languages and it’s about to reach an even broader audience with the introduction of the MSC online course. It’s the first of a range of monitoring, evaluation and social impact online learning courses to be released via Clear Horizon’s new digital learning platform – the Clear Horizon Academy.
The courses are co-designed by social change practitioners and learning designers and focus on providing learners with practical tools and resources, real-life case studies, a sense of community and industry engagement.
Accessibility to learning and the opportunity to practice and reflect with help is a key driver for starting the Clear Horizon Academy. As well as overcoming geographical boundaries, online learning gives people the opportunity to fit their learning around their work and lifestyle.
Clear Horizon Academy’s Most Significant Change online course starts on Monday 19 August, 2019. The online course will run for four weeks, with a time commitment of approximately 3-4 hours per week. Enrol now.
Rick Davies and Jess Dart wrote the MSC User Guide in 2005, and were jointly awarded the 2006 Australasian Evaluation Society Award for this technique.
