Measuring social impact: part 2

Part 2: Evaluation Methods. Everyday people are working to strengthen communities, and running programs that seek to better the lives of people across the globe. But how do we know we’re achieving what we set out to? How do we know we’re making a difference? This course will equip you with the tools to showcase your impact to funders and, more importantly, to evaluate whether your program is achieving what it set out to do.

About this course

In the previous UTS Open course Measuring Social Impact you mapped out the change you want to see through your program - now we’re going to measure whether you’re achieving that change!

Evaluation is the process we undertake to ensure we are actually having an impact - think of it as a 'health check' for your social impact program. This course has been designed to simplify the language of evaluation, introduce you to common frameworks and tools used in measurement, and make sure you do a quality job. Evaluation is something anyone can do, all you need is the right toolkit.
