This informative day with Heléne Clark, Director of ActKnowledge and President of the Center for Theory of Change, will teach participants the basics of the proper way to develop a ToC in a participatory way.  It will include creative ways to work long-distance and in challenging settings. The second half of the day will focus on how to use a ToC to create a Results Framework for evaluation, including the development of measurable indicators.  As an added attraction, participants will see Theory of Change Online demonstrated – a web-based application for creating, storing and working collaboratively.  The format will include presentation, Q & A, and small group exercises on real world problems relevant to the participants.
