It covers engaging stakeholders; developing evaluation and monitoring questions; theories of change and logic models; selecting indicators and data collection methods and tools; reporting; and ethics and quality assurance in monitoring and evaluation.
We will explore a variety of monitoring and evaluation approaches and discuss standards of practice, ethical considerations, and continuous learning in monitoring and evaluation.  Special topics on cultural competencies will also be covered.
These two courses run January to April 2020 and applications for the full program are accepted year round. Registration for January courses is open until January 2nd, 2020, subject to availability.
