Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) Frameworks are becoming increasingly important for developing an agreed approach to the assessment of results achieved and to aid organisational learning.
The M&E Framework identifies expected results, key evaluation questions and the means to answer these questions through routine monitoring and periodic evaluation.
It also provides a guide to the implementation of M&E processes over the life of a program or other initiative. Monitoring and evaluation functions are essential to the effective operation of programs and will contribute to the overall value derived from them.
Monitoring and Evaluation Frameworks support decision-making, resource allocation and a process of regular program-focused reflection and learning leading to program refinement and improvement over time.
Who should attend?
This workshop, run by the Australasian Evaluation Society (AES), offers professionals from across government, universities and not-for-profit and consulting organisations foundation skills in planning for the monitoring and evaluation of an initiative, program or project.
You would benefit most from the workshop if you have some prior knowledge of evaluation, particularly program theory and program logic and some practical experience with evaluation activities.
