eSTEeM Community Event: Theory of Change: Developing pathways to impactful scholarship

Wednesday, July 10, 2024 - 10:00 to 12:00
Via MS Teams


The impact of scholarship implies demonstrable benefits to learning and teaching that are directly attributable to a scholarship project. In this workshop, we will discuss why impact matters for student experience and outcomes, reputation of the institution, and for the funders. You will learn to apply Theory of Change (ToC) as a structured and systematic approach to map out necessary steps to achieve short-term and long-term impact of your scholarship project. We will discuss how the ToC helps to monitor and plan the evaluation of your scholarship project for the desired impact or change.
