The focus of the course is the introduction and application of monitoring and evaluation as a technique to oversee project implementation and to make performance based decisions during the project or program implementation on the higher level. Application of monitoring and evaluation techniques is essential in determination if the project or intervention is on track, describing implementation, fidelity and needed modifications, as well as determination of needed intervention or program. Monitoring and evaluation tools assist in project planning identifying models that achieve desired outcomes and estimating the degree to which objectives/results are being met. The application of monitoring and evaluation tools is also used in judging overall value of the program in effectiveness, efficiency, value and cost.

COURSE OBJECTIVE
•Describe and identify steps in building project monitoring and evaluation framework
•Understand the concept, tools, methods for monitoring and evaluation
•Identify strategies for addressing challenges to successful monitoring
•Identify key stakeholders
•Develop monitoring indicators for assessing project/program outputs and outcomes
•Conduct monitoring and evaluation process using appropriate design, methods and analytic models
