IFSTAL Workshop 4 – Shaping Change and Developing Solutions  

This workshop will introduce a method which is commonly used in organisations seeking to make and evaluate change – Theory of Change. This framework, while not widely used in academic research, is often used in the NGO and government sectors. Workshop  builds on Workshops 1-3, consolidates your learning from Unit 4 on the portal and provides a useful framework to practice and critique.  During the workshop participants will have a chance to practice the method by applying the framework to a food systems context.


Workshop Learning Outcomes  

  • Have applied and used Theory of Change framework to examine a food systems intervention 

  • Have critically evaluated Theory of Change framework, identifying strengths and weaknesses 

  • Have used a systems approach to suggest improvements 

  • Worked in a multi-disciplinary team 

The same workshop will be hosted at each location below.

Away Day: Working together to effect change

Saturday, 3 March, 12:00 AM

When: Saturday 3rd March 2018

Where: Rooms 1.005/1.006, Warwick Business School, University of Warwick

Away Days are IFSTAL-exclusive face to face whole-day events held at one of the collaborating institutions twice per academic year. We bring together 30 lucky IFSTAL participants on a Saturday to bolster their employability skills, meet IFSTAL participants from the other institutions, and work together on a food systems related task. We also invite workplace speakers to talk about their roles in the food system and their career pathways, and give you an opportunity to speak with them in smaller groups. Our Away Days are always great fun, and a fantastic way to meet your future friends, colleagues and employers, in an informal and inspiring environment.

Places will be limited to a maximum of 30. We will reimburse travel expenses, with the assumption that people will be travelling from the location of their institution.
