  • Publicise upcoming M&E training events: PS: Off-topic posts will be deleted
  • Post comments or questions about any particular training events that have already been posted
Advice:
  • Try to include the date, location and title of the training event in the heading of your post
  • If you want to include a working web link in your message, you need to sorround the link within HTML code. This is easy. For the basics of how to do this go to http://www.w3schools.com/html/html_links.asp 
Here is an online survey into training needs. Participate in the survey to let people know what kind of training you need.
 
Look at the results if you are providing some type of M&E training, and you want your training to address people's needs.
 
Here is a list of M&E training providers, organised country by country. If you want your organisation to be included in the list, post a message using the Comment form at the bottom of that page.

Advanced Monitoring and Evaluation for Results:Real-Time Monitoring (RTM) in the learning process

Recent years have seen the realisation of the importance of strong project theory. The most sophisticated Theory of Change (ToC) models are non-linear and highly reflective, particularly concerning the assumptions we make in articulating models of change

Why choose this course
This course builds on the training provided in our M&E for Results course and is primarily for organisations who want to build systematic learning and reflection into complex projects and programmes. It combines advanced Theory of Change modelling with proven, analytical realtime monitoring of results and targeted qualitative reviews to continually test assumptions made in design. It is based on an action learning cycle. When both senior and junior staff from the same organisation participate together it is especially useful.

What you will learn
The course focuses on individual or group development of conceptual models and spreadsheet-based systems for your own organisation using theoretical presentation, illustration and practical exercises where you will learn:


  • about the structure and operation of action learning-based model of process learning

  • how to do field assessments using cognitive mapping

  • the refinement of non-linear Theory of Change models (some prior knowledge assumed)

  • about managerially relevant and analytical output monitoring systems

  • how to quantify intangible higher outcomes in an analytical way

  • comparative analysis of all stages of the results chain

  • how to conduct rapid qualitative reviews to investigate failed assumptions

  • how to manage learning systems.
