Description

Early-Bird Registration Now Open for OCIC Monitoring, Evaluation & Learning Workshop, in Partnership with Salanga

Do you dream of a day when you can move beyond using data mostly for reporting to donors? Are you inspired to use your data for real-time decision making and learning but need some ideas? Do you ever wonder what to include and how much to cost out for your monitoring, evaluation and learning activities? If so, this is the workshop for you! This interactive, practical workshop focuses on two of most important, yet misunderstood, skills needed in MEL: learning and creating feedback loops from your data, and budgeting appropriately for MEL activities.

The first part of the workshop will focus on how to ensure information you collect makes a difference. Over 80% of the data collected from development projects is never analyzed or shared. Together we will explore different methods for sharing data with beneficiaries, management, different departmental teams and external stakeholders. Practical examples and tips will be shared amongst participants and together we will assess some of the goods, the bads and the possibilities of evidence-based decision making.

The second part of the workshop will focus on how to easily identify and plan costs for different MEL activities within a project budget. We will talk through and engage in hands-on exercises to map out major components to budget for (from hardware to software to learning) and discuss some of the most frequently asked questions when it comes to budgeting for MEL. At the end of the day you will leave with practical ideas, new MEL friends and more enthusiasm for how to ensure MEL is meaningful to you and your organization.
