Collaborative Logic Modeling: A Tool for Developing a Shared Vision across Diverse Partner Perspectives


"NSF requires articulating theories of change and/or logic models (LM) for MSP proposal submission. Situated in three MSP targeted partnership programs, a panel of PI's, project directors, district leaders, and evaluators will share their journeys using LMs formatively for continuous improvement. This panel used a collaborative LM development (CLM) process for management, research, evaluation and professional development initiatives along with examples. Findings address the benefits and challenges of using CLM to: 1) help build consensus and foster collaboration across complex layers of networked partners, 2) strengthen program management, implementation, research and evaluation designs, and 3) identify and articulate negotiated theories of change. Panel members will help participants apply templates to explore how CLM can be adapted for their projects."
