Emery, Mary; Higgins, Lorie; Chazdon, Scott; Hansen, Debra
Journal of Extension, v53 n2 Article 2TOT1 Apr 2015
A mind mapping approach to evaluation called Ripple Effects Mapping (REM) has been developed and used by a number of Extension faculty across the country recently. This article describes three approaches to REM, as well as key differences and similarities. The authors, each from different land-grant institutions, believe REM is an effective way to document direct and indirect impacts of community development programs while providing an opportunity for reflection and inspiration to program participants.
