Introduction to Monitoring and Evaluation

Introduction to Monitoring and Evaluation

Understand key monitoring and evaluation concepts and terminology including how monitoring and evaluation fits with the program cycle, the role of key evaluation questions, and what is included in a monitoring and evaluation plan.

Overview

Many people fear evaluation because they think it’s all about being judged. But when done well evaluation provides useful feedback to aid in decision-making and improves projects, ultimately leading to positive social change. This 1 day workshop introduces participants to basic concepts related to evaluating projects and programs. The workshop is designed to de-mystify the evaluation process exploring such topics as: fit for purpose evaluation processes and approaches; interpreting data and producing findings; engaging with stakeholders; the nature and use of evaluation; ethics in evaluation; and key issues and trends in the field of evaluation. Participants will be equipped to develop the right evaluation strategy to suit an organisations program needs, within budget and to satisfy information and reporting needs.

This workshop is offered in partnership with the Australian Evaluation Society (AES). AES members please register here through the AES’ website.

Thoroughly enjoyed Rick’s extensive knowledge on this topic. Rick allowed plenty of time for two-way and group discussion. The content was exactly as I was hoping it to be, it was very relevant for me.
