Event detail
Monitoring & Evaluation for Learning – Blended course Designing M&E and Learning systems through both classroom and online learning   Why this course? Capturing the quantitative and qualitative results (outputs, outcomes and impacts) of your programme has become increasingly important. How to design an M&E system that goes beyond tracking activities? Learn how to show results and make sure your system also enables genuine learning by all actors. What is blended learning? Two weeks before the face-to-face training starts, course participants access the online learning platform remotely, and become acquainted with the trainer. The platform provides participant’s information and preparation materials to engage in discussions and prepare for the course. This takes about 2-4 hours per week. Subsequently, the 4 training days are face-to-face and provides you with an extended set of relevant, practical and participatory M&E methodologies and tools to boost your programme and organisational accountability, decision-making and learning practices.   Course objectives By the end of this course, you will:
  • Understand effective results-based M&E and how to apply it to your M&E framework
  • Know how to turn M&E into a participative and systematic learning practice
