Theory of Change

$1,050.00 (GST incl.)

This workshop introduces the program logic/theory of change concept and lays out a step by step process for creating a logic/theory of change model. A program logic/ theory of change focuses not just on what, and how a project is trying to achieve change but also on ‘the who’ will be changing. The course includes discussion of how program logic / theory of change can be used for program design and how it can be used to provide the structure for monitoring and evaluation plans.

The course will commence with an overview of program logic / theory of change and a hands-on introduction to developing a simple hypothetical logic model. Following a more detailed overview of the various approaches to program logic development and their relative strengths, participants will be introduced to a structured process for developing a logic / theory of change, using a hypothetical behaviour change project.

The course will conclude with a bridging session that outlines the process for using program logic / theory of change to develop meaningful targets, monitoring systems and well-targeted evaluation plans. The training will include a mix of expert presentation, small group work, and Q&A.
