I'm doing user research for some awesome people developing a podcast for emerging professionals in social impact. If you're in the first 0-5 years of your social impact career, please take 3-5 minutes to fill this out. Thank you!


Hi All, we are coming to the end of Session 2 and just now I found the Google+ community for the course! For any MOOC, community can be the difference between success and failure so this is another way to learn, connect, and engage. Our team is AFRICAN EDUCATION with a commitment to reducing the barriers to an education. My day-job is in the Learning & Teaching Centre at the British Columbian Institute of Technology in Vancouver, Canada.

My foundation PDF Intl. focuses on this paradigm change with the orientation of wildlife protection and self-development. Find me on FB, Twitter (pearlofdawn) or on LinkedIn.  Hope I can keep in touch with all of you in order to create a successful future for mankind together!

For whom it might concern deepen the subject

A nonprofit's strategy determines whether the organization will sink or swim. Nonetheless, nonprofit leaders are often unable or unwilling to plan in the short-term to achieve long-lasting social change.

This course will help you develop successful strategies to achieve your organization's goals and make strides towards meaningful impact. Using the social problems of homelessness and childhood obesity as real world examples, you will learn how to undertake the basic elements of strategy: defining the problem, identifying stakeholders, designing a theory of change and logic model, and establishing assessment criteria. With this foundation, you will be able to develop strategies that will ensure long-term impact for your own organizations—rather than just the illusion of results.

Welcome classmates!
So we've decided we want to explore #OpenKnowlage and #PeerLearning for #Social_impact togheder. Maybe you have already found a few people who will support you in this effort.

It’s time now to focus our thinking. How we'll convene others to form a suitable group? How can we design a learning experience which will make our GROOC thrive? We need you help, expertise and inspiration to make this group even more exciting.

We also need effective methods for groups which contain novices, experts, and everyone in between with a wide range of expertise.

I would like to share with you the allow list  by +Simon Sinek in our community.
Rules that tell us what NOT to do hold people back. Instead, the rules should help us progress. Our teams' rules in this community consist of the things that we are allowed.

Have a great week!
