LOOKING FOR IMPCAT:
THE CAT IS NOT A TYPO!
Webinar with Francesco Volpini
“It is very difficult to find a black cat in a dark room.
Especially if it’s not there”.
How can you know if your training courses and educational events bring change to the participants?
Find out if you’re making a difference and how to measure your impact as a trainer and educator!
The impact guru, researcher and a fan of non-formal education Francesco Volpini will guide you through the process and effects of impact measurement in educational activities.
At the webinar, we will start from the recent experience of International Voluntary Service organisations around the world, which aimed at assessing the impact of volunteering as a tool for popular education.
Next, we will look at the challenges and outcomes of participatory research in the context of non- formal education: where learning is intended, organised, and can produce transformational change for the individuals, communities and organisations involved. By linking general concepts of programme evaluability and theory of change to the specific learning objectives and training and educational methodologies of our work, we will try to start answering
the most important question in evaluation and assessment research:
What did you want to do (and how)? Is the black cat really supposed to be in the room?
