Today’s illustration inspired by one part of Tom Archibald’s blog post on Fostering Evaluative Thinking.
Create an intentional ET learning environment
- Display logic models or other theory of change diagrams in the workplace—in meeting rooms, within newsletters, etc.
- Create public spaces to record and display questions and assumptions.
- Post inspirational questions, such as, “How do we know what we think we know?” (as suggested by Michael Patton here).
- Highlight the learning that comes from successful programs and evaluations and also from “failures” or dead ends.
