Ever wonder what the difference is between Theory of Change and Change Theory? Or how research and evaluation differ––aren’t they really the same? Outputs and outcomes––what’s up about that? Join Linda Hyman and Mary Harris as they walk though these concepts and how they work together to navigate the language of evaluation and assessment.  Participants will review a case study to address some of these basic concepts.
