Interested in a Theory of Change training?
The East and Southern Africa Regional TOPS/FSN Network Knowledge Sharing Meeting will take place in Uganda in September, 2016. If there is enough interest, we hope to host a Theory of Change (ToC) workshop the week immediately following the event.
Please submit a brief survey by March 22, 2016 so we can determine if there is sufficient demand.
The TOPS ToC training is a 5-day intensive participatory workshop. Designed to help PVOs align models to USAID office of Food for Peace requirements, the training covers the following topics.
- Overview of theory of change
- Using a conceptual framework to inform data collection and analysis
- Causal analysis and problem trees
- From problems to solutions to pathways of change
- Assumptions and risks
- Prioritizing domains of change
- Using a theory of change
Through short lectures and many breakout sections, participants use actual data sets to develop a ToC for a hypothetical development program. The step-by-step process is rooted in thorough data analysis. The learning objective for the 5-day session is to ensure participants understand how a ToC is used in planning, implementing, monitoring, and evaluating development programs.
