Planning, Monitoring, Evaluation & Learning

Planning, Monitoring, Evaluation & Learning

The pressure that organisations working in development and social change face to show ‘results’ often ends up undermining our ability to take a step back and look at our work with a fresh perspective, asking new questions. Does our M&E framework represent what we are really trying to achieve? Are we bringing learning into practice adequately? Are our partners learning and growing with us? Or are we just ‘ticking the boxes’ with a growing sense of unease, losing track of the deeper questions? 

This course will assist you in getting the basics right, so that you can comply with the demand for quantitative data, whilst at the same time providing you with a more developmental way of doing M&E that is focused on continuous learning in order to improve future practice and achieve more sustainable impact.

Technology for Data Collection and Survey

 Technology for Data Collection and Survey

Data collection is the building block of M&E work. The data collected determines the value of analysis and the impact that can be measured. Digital survey tools have added new elements to survey design, such as skip logic, data validation, and decision trees. New technologies, such as biometrics, remote sensors, and satellite imagery, provide additional tools for data collection and identifying beneficiaries. Understanding these tools, how to design and deploy digital surveys, and how to combine active and passive data collection is necessary to maximize the value from data collection effort.
