Results-based Monitoring and Evaluation Training

This five-day course is intended to provide an overview of results-based monitoring and evaluation methods with practical applications of tools and methods. This course will provide participants with M&E tools, techniques and resources needed for planning, organizing, and/or managing programs and projects. Through exercises and group work, participants will learn the links between results-based measurement, monitoring and program evaluation. Time will be allotted for practical exercises and informal question and answer sessions around common M&E problem areas. Resources for further study and research in the M&E field will be provided.

Topics include theories of change, indicators of outputs and outcomes, designs for evaluation, data collection, including sampling, and data analysis. Additional sources of web-based information on M&E are provided at the end of the workshop.

The workshop is based on a belief that active learning tailored to specific needs can be both effective and enjoyable. For this reason, the workshop includes several group projects that enable participants to translate theory into practice and to apply what they have learned to their particular needs as soon as they return to their work environments.
