Ripple Effects Mapping: A Participatory Evaluation Approach for Engaged Community Work

June 12, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Register here

Ripple Effects Mapping (REM), uses elements of Appreciative Inquiry, mind mapping, and qualitative data analysis to engage program participants to reflect upon and visually map the intended and unintended changes produced by a complex program or collaboration. The result is not only a powerful technique to document impacts, but a way to engage and re-energize participants and stakeholders to keep moving toward collective goals.

Presenter Scott Chazdon, an evaluator with the University of Minnesota’s Extension Center for Community Vitality, will provide an in-depth description of REMs use to document the impacts of collaborative community initiatives, such as community gardening efforts in the Frogtown and Rondo neighborhoods near downtown Saint Paul.

Coffey Hall is located at the corner of Buford and Eckles, across the street from the Saint Paul Student Center. Paid parking is available at a surface lot at the corner of Commonwealth and Cleveland or at the Gortner Ramp. The surface lot less expensive ($4). More information on parking is available here.

Registration is free of charge for those from Minnesota Campus Compact member campuses and their partners, but is required and space is limited. Registration closes on June 9 at 5 pm or when the event is filled, whichever is first.

With questions, please contact Sinda Nichols at sinda {at} mncampuscompact(.)org or 612-436-2080.
