Theory of Change

Institute 0 1429

A theory of change, quite simply, is the thinking (theory) behind the change your programme or service wants to achieve. It makes very clear the rationale which your work is based upon. It’s also been called a ‘roadmap’ for all to see and understand and, in this sense, needs to be logical.

Approaches to Research and Evaluation for Outdoor Practitioners
facilitated by Heather Prince and Chris Loynes

This free workshop will help outdoor practitioners to develop knowledge and skills to evaluate their practice. It will allow attendees to focus on their own small-scale contexts such as those in a single organisation or group of organisations engaged in similar practices, and to consider how they might generate evidence of impact and outcomes for staff, participants, trustees and funders.
