Upcoming eStudy Courses

eStudy072: Evaluation-Driven Deep Whole-System Change- Jane Davidson & Joanne McEachen
Dates: Monday, June 20 and Wednesday, June 22 from 3:00pm-4:30pm ET
Length: 3/6 total contact hours
Description: What does it take to design and lead deep whole-system change, and why are evaluative thinking, frameworks, tools, and systems crucial for making it happen? In this eStudy, you will learn about a powerful whole-system change framework, built on evaluative thinking,  that can be used to design, drive, and track systemic change in virtually any context. To illustrate, we have a compelling case example from education. User-friendly evaluative frameworks are used at every level of the system to diagnose root causes and design the right mix of approaches to address them. The evaluative monitoring helps enable and drive the change. Rubric methodology is used to ensure that we make the important measurable, especially those more intangible outcomes that often matter more.This eStudy will occur in two 1.5-hour sessions and will include preparation materials sent before, between, and after the sessions. 

Day 1 | Monday, June 20:Overview and explanation of the evaluation-driven deep systems change model, using education as an example. Plenty of time for Q&A.

Day 2 | Wednesday, June 22: A deeper explanation of  the tools, systems, and evaluative thinking  that form the basis of the approach – driven heavily by participant interest and questions submitted before, during, and after Day 1. We can also share some examples of other tools and systems we have developed for different projects, including the New Pedagogies for Deep Learning 10-country partnership. 

Dr. Jane Davidson is an international thought leader in evaluation, known for developing cutting-edge methodologies that make evaluation practical, user-friendly, and actionable. She is best known for developing evaluation rubrics, and for her work on qualitative and mixed method approaches to causal inference. She also has deep expertise in systems and organizational culture change. Jane launched and directed the world’s first fully Interdisciplinary Ph.D. in Evaluation at Western Michigan University, was 2005 recipient of the American Evaluation Association’s Marcia Guttentag Award, and is author of the leading text on evaluation-specific methodology (Sage). She is based in Seattle, and is President of Real Evaluation and Co-Founder and Vice President of The Learner First.

Joanne McEachen is an internationally recognized expert in educational systems change. She is Co-Founder, President and Chief Destiny Changer of The Learner First, where she draws on her extensive experience leading change at every level of the education system, as a teacher, a principal, a regional manager/superintendent, and a whole-country level systems change leader. Joanne also serves as Global New Measures Director for New Pedagogies for Deep Learning: A Global Partnership, alongside her other business partners, Michael Fullan and Joanne Quinn. This 10-country, 1000-school initiative includes countries such as Finland, Australia, Uruguay, New Zealand, The Netherlands, Canada, and the USA
