Outcome Mapping Virtual Learning Community - Phase III

Earlier phases were funded under projects 103520 and 104663. Phase II saw significant growth of the Outcome Mapping Learning Community (OMLC), and increased interest in Outcome Mapping methodology. Indeed, the OMLC affirmed its position as a vibrant community of practice and steward of Outcome Mapping.

This phase will continue to develop practical tools and support mechanisms, and to push the boundaries of Outcome Mapping theory and practice through innovation and research. The Community will also endeavor in a systematic way to influence key players in the development field to embed the principles of Outcome Mapping in development programs. The heart and the identity of the Community will continue to be a virtual space (www.outcomemapping.ca), and online interaction will be the key driver. Increased effort will be made to plan high-quality, relevant and engaging online events to stimulate knowledge sharing between experienced practitioners and newcomers alike.
