This course provides a foundation for those involved in designing and implementing evaluations as well as those managing evaluations. The three interrelated modules engage in a practical yet thoughtful manner with the subject matter from the perspective of both evaluators and those managing evaluations: creating the best possible design within the limitations of time and budget is a familiar dilemma; managing evaluations seems simple, but in fact requires a complex set of competencies; and ethics is embedded in everything, and an integral part of building professional evaluation competence.

The course is designed to bring together all these aspects and to get you thinking proactively and creatively about the exciting challenges inherent in this work.

Who should attend: government employees, consultants, graduates and students of M&E, local and international funders, and NGO employees in the development sector.
