THEORY OF CHANGE FEEDBACK
Comments have been added to your theory of changes now for you to review and then make adjustments as you wish. I'm impressed at what you managed to achieve in the short amount of time in the live sessions.
In the next live session, we will be doing a group photo! 🧀 We do this in class-based workshops so we thought why not do this for online ones too?! You are welcome to turn your camera off if you'd rather not be in the photo. Virtual backgrounds encouraged!
SOFTWARE FOR CREATING CONCEPTUAL MODELS
At the moment, we use PowerPoint for creating conceptual models as we can use our font and colours. We've been using Google slides in the workshop which is good because multiple people can work on the document at the same time. With both these options, however, it can be a bit fiddly to make the arrows neat. Two suggestions for alternative software are:
- Miradi - Conservation specific software which uses the Open Standard approach that SDWC is based on. It is free for the first 60 days.
- Y works - I've only had a quick look but it looks good. You can change the colour of boxes and there are lots of options for arrows.
Does anyone have other suggestions?
All the best,
