Reflection in a Time of Rapid Response: How to Better Pivot Beginning Farmer and Rancher Programming in Times of COVID-19
Evaluative thinking is a practice meant to help people and organizations improve their programming – to be more effective, strategic and responsive. It is a practice that can be part of an overall evaluation plan, or used independently on a regular basis. It can be particularly useful in times of crisis and upheaval.
This GREW Project Learning Community session will provide a brief overview of evaluative thinking and a series of reflective questions that can help participants start to think evaluatively. Participants will work with each other, in both small and large groups, to practice using these questions to explore how we are pivoting our programming, how we might refine these strategies, and how we can best use evaluative thinking to keep adapting. The goal is for
participants to experience evaluative thinking so they feel inspired and able to implement this process at their organizations.
