Participatory Monitoring & Evaluation Workshop with Mosaic International

University of Ottawa, Ottawa, ON
An intensive six-day experiential workshop that is practically focused
July 10-15, 2017

There is increasing evidence showing that evaluation practices that are participatory and inclusive as possible lead to recommendations that have a better probability of being implemented and adopted. Participatory Monitoring and Evaluation (PM&E) involves a different approach to project monitoring and evaluation by involving local people, project stakeholders, and development agencies deciding together about how to measure results and what actions should follow once this information has been collected and analyzed. This popular and intensive six-day experiential workshop is practically focused with daily excursions into the community and a three-day community assignment with a community based organization. Topics covered at the workshop include Origins of PM&E, Skills and Attributes of a PM&E facilitator, Learning PM&E tools, Designing a monitoring and evaluation framework, Quantitative and Qualitative Indicators, Using Mixed-methods, How to triangulate your findings, Building Action Plans and much more. A three day community practicum with an Ottawa non-profit organization will enable you to actually practice the tools learned in the workshop in a real life setting.

Mosaic workshops are known for their hands-on approach where workshop participants roll up their sleeves to apply key concepts to real life situations. If you are in the Advanced RBM workshop, this may consist of working on real life programme or projects to develop logic models and performance measurement frameworks that can be used by workshop participants. If you are in the Participatory Monitoring and Evaluation Workshop, you will pilot evaluation tools and methods learned in the workshop in a real life evaluation that your team will be undertaking of an Ottawa community based organization. Expect to work with the homeless, vulnerable populations, women or clients of the community based organization.

All workshops offered by Mosaic will test your tenacity, RBM and/or evaluation skills and ability to perform challenging fieldwork that will enrich your learning and replenish your professional toolbox in performance measurement, gender and evaluation in ways that are participatory, inclusive and empowering.
