This six-week online course brings together tried and tested techniques to design relevant Real-Time Monitoring systems for ‘learning process’ development projects and programmes. With managerial relevance comes the enthusiasm to gather, analyse and use information at the project-level while providing quality ongoing formative evaluation for policy level. Alongside innovative, flexible methods for tracking real-time progress, it also shows how to analyse and present data to interrogate physical progress of outputs for managerial efficiency and the responses at higher outcomes. Both qualitative and quantitative methods will be analysed and their powerful combination explored.
It is essential that participants have a sound existing knowledge of current M&E practice. A functional knowledge of basic spreadsheet use (e.g. MS Excel) would also be useful, you will be working in groups, improving your own project monitoring systems and sharing with your group and tutors.
You will learn:
• Open exploration using cognitive mapping
• Strong and evolving project theory
• A move to ongoing, formative evaluation
• Use of comparative monitoring in real-time (RTM) at all levels of the results chain
• Internal reviews (ALEX) for qualitative learning
• Design and control of systems at lower levels; reflection and guidance from upper levels
IMA International facilitators will guide and mentor your learning process, providing you with:
