Join MEASURE Evaluation on February 22 at 9am EST for a one-hour webinar on a new short course on qualitative evaluation methods for professionals in developing countries.
Many evaluations add in a qualitative component as an afterthought and often conduct qualitative data collection and analysis without staff adequately trained in qualitative methods. To address this challenge, MEASURE Evaluation and the Global Evaluation and Monitoring Network for Health (GEMNet-Health) engaged in a collaborative process to develop a 50-hour short course on qualitative evaluation methods for professionals involved in implementing and evaluating health programs. The course aims to build on participants’ basic knowledge of qualitative methods and advance their capacity to apply these methods in evaluation of public health programs.
The short course on intermediate qualitative evaluation methods was designed and taught by experienced trainers from several countries, professions, and disciplinary backgrounds. It has been tested at a training-of-trainers workshop and then piloted with monitoring and evaluation professionals.
This webinar will describe the curriculum development process, highlight innovative content at the intermediate level, and share experiences addressing challenges from working with teams of diverse trainers and participants.
