pdf.png Guide For The Establishment, Organisation And Management Of Learning Networks In The Public Service

(0 votes)

Download

This learning network practice note presents the elements and features of an effective LN, the process to establish a LN and the roles that the GTAC or other organisations can
play as the LN “cultivator”. Regardless of the specific role that the “cultivator” plays, what is clear from the research and practice is that LNs do require a “holder of the space” in
order to function effectively.

This document introduces the process of developing an Evidence Map and aims to guide prospective users on the methodological requirements associated with the tool. It also hopes to introduce a wider audience to evidence mapping that is interested in developing and learning more about the tool. This guidance note was produced by a team of researchers and decision makers in the Department of Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation (DPME), together with social scientists at the University of Johannesburg, following a nine-month pilot project of co-producing an evidence map on housing, human settlements and the built environment.
