A new self-paced, online training curriculum on measures, “Measures Demystified” is now available This curriculum updates and expands the existing on-line course, Monitoring Our Conservation Work, including three new modules that merge the process of conservation planning and measures authored by Terri Schulz of the Colorado Chapter and featuring the process of creating measures for our Mongolia Program.

The curriculum is free and open to the public and provides students with the opportunity to explore, at their own pace, the process of considering the audience and conservation context for monitoring programs, as well as reviewing the fundamentals of articulating program logic and experimental design for cost effective data collection, which we collectively refer to as “measures.” The concepts in this course can be applied directly to specific facets of the new conservation business planning approach.

There are six major focus areas, or modules, of the Measures Demystified course.

  1. Why, When, and How Much to Invest in Measures
  2. Measures Fundamentals
  3. Situation Analysis
  4. Developing Objectives
  5. Theory of Change and Logic Models
  6. Monitoring Design

Students can take just one module or all six. Please encourage your staff, colleagues and partners to enroll today!
