Knowledge, Learning, Community

This post dovetails nicely with another one in this issue of OLDaily, and sandwiched between them are various considerations on evidence and policy. Here's the argument here: "current approaches that fund individual projects (requiring clear outcomes, and evaluating progress towards those outcomes) have actually inhibited the kind of innovation and transformation needed to completely shift the many interrelated systems that make up our world. This means concepts such as evaluation and assessment of impact need to shift as well." Be sure to follow up with the collaborative document being written on the subject, on Google Docs, as well as this panel video.
