    What results are you seeking? What difference do you want to make? A theory of change is a popular tool used to help you plan and communicate what you do and support your monitoring and evaluation. In this course, you will learn about and create your own theory of change and narrative. The tool will help you articulate and connect the change your organisation wants to make with the activities you intend to carry out.

Practical examples will help you learn how to develop data collection tools such as questionnaires and interview topic guides.
