How do you evaluate your Asset-Based Community Development work when your goal is to bring citizens together to share their gifts, create local opportunities, and respond to the needs and challenges in their neighbourhoods? In an article called Four Essential Elements of and Asset-Based Community Development Process published by John McKnight and Cormac Russell in the spring of 2019, they discuss ABCD principles for effective evaluation:
• Identify the growth of gift exchange
• Identify the growth and deepening of associational life
• Attend to the growth of the number of participating and co-producing residents and increase citizen power
Join John McKnight and Howard Lawrence as they discuss how to evaluate an ABCD process and move away from traditional top down summative and formative evaluation process. They will talk about developmental and emancipatory learning processes.
