This two-day capacity-building workshop will bring together community-based organizations from the High Divide region and the Northern Rockies to learn about and design evaluation and monitoring programs and protocols. Steve Patty and his team from Dialogues In Action will cover topics on organizational evaluation and monitoring and engage participants through facilitated working sessions. Throughout the workshop, Dialogues In Action will guide participants in the crafting of their own organization’s Theory of Change and monitoring and evaluation procedure and protocols. Following this two-day intensive workshop, the Dialogues In Action team will return for additional consultation to ensure participants are effectively able to implement the plans and provide additional guidance. Workshop objectives include: -Providing all participants with a shared understanding of the value and process for creating an organizational “Theory of Change.” -Highlighting successful evaluation efforts in the High Divide region and explore the gaps and barriers as well as new program opportunities. -Growing individual and organizational capacity to use monitoring and evaluation tools and techniques to achieve intended results and to tell stories of success (and failure). -Building participants’ knowledge of and practices with monitoring and evaluation in the context of community-based collaboration, focusing on both individual projects and organizations, and how to link these results across organizations on a landscape scale. -Improving participants’ access to tools, resources, and methods that enhance monitoring and evaluation. -Drafting an organizational Theory of Change and an Evaluation Procedure, or building upon existing plans. To effectively achieve these outcomes and gain the most from the workshop, we are asking groups to have at least 2 participants from their organizations plan to attend this event.
