Beyond Logic Models: Evaluating Complex Emerging Programs

The eXtension Military Families Initiative Network Literacy Community of Practice (CoP) was created to build a community around learning in online networked environments. The CoP helps Extension professionals and military service helping professionals use social networks and learning networks to work more effectively and efficiently across boundaries. The emerging nature of the CoP’s work requires an evaluation method that captures the fluidity and constant change inherent in working in a complex system. Using reflective practice in a developmental evaluation framework, the Network Literacy CoP is able to monitor and adapt quickly to the environment. This session will focus on the work of the Network Literacy CoP as it incorporates a developmental evaluation approach. Presenters will discuss the CoP and its work implementing the reflective practice and lessons learned.
