Key Learning

By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:
1. Describe and understand the four stages in an M&E system
2. Develop a framework that links project activities to outcomes and
impacts (goals)
3. Develop indicators that effectively identify progress toward project
4. Develop a system to collect and compile data
5. Determine an appropriate method of analyzing, presenting and
disseminating information to different stakeholders
6. Demonstrate the ability to use information to identify problems and
implement changes

The whole sessions are spread over five days and use various teaching and learning methods such as case studies, worksheets, role plays, small and large group exercises and interactive presentations. The class will be
provide with a suggested agenda that can be revised as needed based on
discussions with participating organizations. Each session has a guide
outlining the contents, timing, preparation and materials required (e.g.,
handouts, slides, worksheets).

Our Facilitators are world class professionals in M&E that understand the
purpose and use of data, they are able to guide organizations to
strengthen planning and to implement the four M&E stages and are very
familiar with using participatory training methods such as case studies
and role plays. The program follows a learn–practice–do model.
Participants will first learn about a concept/component of the M&E system
through a brief PowerPoint presentation and discussion. Then they will
work in small groups to critique how an organization described in a case
study has tackled this concept (practice) and finally participants will
work with others from their organization to design their own M&E system

Participants’ Materials
Each workshop participant will receive a packet containing information for
use during and after the workshop (e.g., agenda, worksheets, case study
and templates etc). Handouts for specific sessions will be given out at the
beginning of the workshop.
