What does Effective Learning Look Like?
Now that we’ve gotten why learning matters out of the way, I wanted to share briefly how we have articulated learning within the USAID Collaborating, Learning, and Adapting (CLA) framework and the CLA Maturity Matrix.Strategic learning (the yellow portion of the CLA framework) focuses on:
- Tracking, using, and contributing to the technical evidence base
- Testing and exploring our theories of change
- Identifying game changers and planning scenarios
- Ensuring our monitoring and evaluation (M&E) are designed to help us learn from implementation, in addition to meeting established reporting requirements
This two-pager offers a deeper dive into the key concepts under learning and examples of CLA in action.
