LSH Basket of Tools
Harvesting Impact at Folk Schools
June 15, 2023, 1pm Eastern
Presenter: Jennifer DeCoste
Data Collection Methods at LifeSchoolHouse: Jennifer DeCoste, founder of the LifeSchoolHouse network in Nova Scotia, Canada, will present her organization’s creative and intentional Basket of Data Collection Tools and Methods. In order to measure meaningful impact, the LifeSchoolHouse has developed user-friendly methods to “emphasize information about the changes we are creating at individual and community levels, rather than feedback about any one event and how it was delivered”.
In this webinar, learn how the Harvesting Our Impact project was developed out of the desire to measure impact at folk schools, to understand how the project was implemented and the results LifeSchoolHouse has seen, and to learn how to implement similar data collection tools and methods at your own folk school or organization.
