Learning Agendas. You’ve heard the term, but what does it really mean and how does it fit with everything else you’re already doing?

A learning agenda is a set of issues or learning themes around which a group or organization commits to generating and sharing lessons in order to build knowledge. Learning agendas can help organizations prove or disprove assumptions within their Theory of Change, shape research and evaluation plans, improve project implementation, and increase the overall evidence base related to food security and nutrition programming.

The 3-day workshop explored learning agendas and how to bring knowledge management, monitoring and evaluation, and facilitation skills to the table to construct effective, collaborative learning agendas that can be implemented within an existing project construct.

The event focused on the development process, learning questions, and implementation.
