An opportunity to connect learning and strategy - join us for a deep dive into all things strategic learning. 

Note: this registration is for the full Eval Lab course. To register only for the free public webinar that introduces this year's Eval Lab program, please click here.

With limited time, evaluation can become a peripheral part of service and program delivery – a check on the funding checklist – rather than a tool of significant value for making improvements in environments of complexity. In response to this struggle, concepts such as strategic learning have emerged as a way to integrate evaluative thinking into the work of nonprofits for improved learning and decision-making. But how does strategic learning work in practice, and can it provide a feasible and useful way of fostering learning in nonprofit organizations and collaboratives?

Over 21 instructional hours, Eval Lab participants will explore strategic learning (and related concepts) within a flexible co-learning environment and test them in their day-to-day work.  This course takes a blended learning model, with registrants participating in online, pre-recorded learning and live sessions (over Zoom).  There will also be opportunity for one on one mentorship during office hours.

These sessions will be recorded and may be used for further educational purposes. Participants will receive a copy of the recordings.
