Making Sense of Community-led Change Workshop | Applying a principles-based approach

2-Day Workshop – Auckland

This workshop is co-hosted by The Knowledge Institute.

We piloted this session in Christchurch in 2019 and people loved it! This session brings both CLD and Developmental Evaluation (DE) together in ways that are practical, proven and interactive.

We’ve designed a session that brings both CLD and DE together in ways that are practical, proven and interactive. We’ll share a range of key frameworks and tools, and there will be plenty of opportunities to apply these directly to your situations, plans and projects.

You’ll be learning from our great workshop facilitators, leading developmental evaluation practitioner Kate McKegg and Inspiring Communities’ Denise Bijoux, who brings extensive practical and strategic experience in locally-led change, community building, placemaking, research and evaluation. And from others in the room too so, bring your ideas, projects and colleagues!

The workshop is for those working in community-led projects as well as funders, evaluators and evaluation commissioners wanting to learn more about authentically demonstrating meaning and value from community-led approaches.

This workshop will help you:

  • Understand how DE and CLD principles and ways of working fit together
  • Apply DE and CLD principles and values to your own community-based projects and contexts
  • Understand why and how to use different kinds of evidence to understand and tell your story
  • Use and apply some DE tools e.g. framing or reviewing your evaluation plan
  • Understand what you can do yourselves and when specialist support might be required
