Monitoring and Evaluation for Humanitarian Programs Workshop - Shanghai

from Harvard University
Registration deadline: 08 Jul 2018 Training date: 09 Jul 2018 to 13 Jul 2018 More Information

Course Overview

The goal of the course is to provide an overview of the basic principles and methodologies for program monitoring and evaluation with emphasis on practical application for humanitarian researchers and practitioners.

The course will provide concrete conceptual frameworks for mixed methods use (both qualitative and quantitative) in program monitoring and evaluation. Methodological and implementation challenges as well applications in program assessment, impact, development, interventions, and overall implementation will be discussed. In addition, the course will provide an introduction to the capabilities of the new digital tools, methods and research resources for increasing quality and efficiency of data collection, access, analysis, and visualization.

In-Class Project

In addition, each participant should come to the workshop with a mixed methods evaluation project idea. Specifically should start thinking about the following prior to the workshop: working title, problem, data collection involving quantitative and qualitative data, and the potential significance of the project. During the workshop, each participant will work on elements of this project and write out the elements on Powerpoint slides. The steps in the process will not reflect the typical linear development as is often seen in a research project. However, at the end of the workshop, we will array the steps in the order typically seen in a study.
