Apply the core principles of evaluation to your own work

Evaluating and monitoring outcomes

This course aims to enable participants to gain a greater understanding of evaluating and monitoring outcomes, and to help them better evaluate their work.

Participants will come to understand key definitions including outcomes, outputs, indicators and activities, and explore the way in which these terms may be used differently in various contexts and by different organisations.

By the end of the course participants will be able to identify and describe the outcomes that a project or activity aims to achieve and use their understanding of the core principles of evaluation to better focus their own evaluation work.

Participants will also learn techniques for use in evaluating and monitoring the outcomes of their own work and be better able to design an evaluation of their own work.
