Evaluation & Learning
"When just ticking boxes no longer makes sense"
Facilitated by Marianne Brittijn and Dzvinka Kachur
Port Elizabeth 4-8 July 2016
The pressure that organisations face for external accountability from donors leave many of M&E specialists tasked with ticking the boxes and filling in the blanks with a sense of unease. Does your M&E framework represent what our project is about? Are you bringing learning into practice adequately? Are our partners learning and growing with us? Or do the blood, sweat and lessons learned from the work somehow get watered down when translating it into units of measure and activities?
Who is this course for?
This 5-day course is for you if you are keen to design M&E processes that foster learning. This course attracts a diverse group of practitioners in the public and NGO sector. You can be new to M&E or an old hand, willing to refresh your understanding of the processes and politics around M&E
The course starts with exploring the value of PME as an organisational learning process that leads to accountability and improved practice. Participants will work with a Logframe, indicator development and Theory of Change. Skills such as asking good questions, listening, reflective thinking and planning will be taught and practised by using the Action-Learning cycle.Data capturing and analysis, organisational learning and internal/external evaluation are the other topics that will be discussed.
Participants will leave with increased personal knowledge and skill and a clear picture of the next step(s) towards improving PME processes that encourage learning within their own organisations.
This course is participatory, so small group work and peer-learning is an integral part of the process. In order to increase the benefit of the course, organisations are encouraged to register more than one employee, ideally including someone with decision making responsibility within the organisation.
