Event: Integrating communications in evaluation – 11h00 – 30 January 2020 ILO, Geneva

For those in Geneva region and interested in communications and evaluation – I will be making a presentation in January 2020, read more:

The Evaluation Office of the International Labour Organization invites you to a presentation by Glenn O’Neililo_image.  The topic of Dr O’Neil’s presentation will be Integrating communications in evaluation.

Communications is an important aspect of evaluation; it has been said that without communications, evaluation would not be possible.

Evaluation commissioners and evaluators are already communicating – but is communications being used optimally to support the evaluation process? In this presentation, Dr O’Neil will challenge the assumptions of how communications “works” for evaluations and propose solutions based on his experience as both a communicator and evaluator, backed up by communication practice and theory.

Dr O’Neil is founder of Owl RE, evaluation and research consultancy, Geneva. Since 15 years, he has led over 100 evaluations and reviews for some 40 organizations, including UN agencies, NGOs, foundations and governments. Dr O’Neil was previously a professional communicator in the non-profit sector and has produced his own guide on Integrating Communications in the Evaluation Process (pdf).

The event will take place from 11:00-12:00 on Thursday 30 January in the ILO Library on R2 (main floor). After the presentation, there will be a networking lunch (at your own expense) in the ILO cafeteria.

No need to register – please come to the ILO reception at 10:50 and ask for Craig Russon of the ILO Evaluation Office.

1 day workshop in Bern: The politics of evaluation; 2 November 2019

Join a 1 day workshop in Bern, Switzerland on the Politics of Evaluation taught by Dr. Marlène Läubli Loud.

The course will look at why and how evaluation is in itself a political activity and consequently, how the «political» interests of the various partners involved can play an important part in influencing the evaluation process. We will look at aspects of political influence and practice how those can be managed to avoid conflicts of interest and minimise risks.

New e-learning course: Real-time evaluation and adaptive management

My friends at TRAASS have launched a new e-learning course on Real-time evaluation and adaptive management:

“What exactly is an RTE/AM approach and how can it help in unstable or conflict affected situations? Do M&E practitioners need to ditch their standard approaches in jumping on this latest bandwagon? What can you do if there is no counterfactual or dataset? This modular course covers these challenges and more.”

New e-learning course: managing the politics of evaluation

One of the challenges faced in evaluation is managing the politics involved – notably with the “tricky triangle” between the evaluator, the commissioners and the project being evaluated.  Key is to try and preserve the impartiality and independence of the evaluation while meeting the needs of all stakeholders.

To help tackle these challenges, a new e-learning course is available from TRAASS International – “Managing the Politics of Evaluation“.  The course is taught over 5 modules by Dr  Marlène Laubi Loud, an experienced evaluator and commissioner.  More information is available here>>. 

You can learn more about the course in this video:

Full disclosure: I also teach e-learning modules for TRAASS International on evaluation report writing and how to be a successful evaluation consultant.

Evaluation training – beginner to advanced

I was recently asked about training available on monitoring and evaluation and selected the following from the beginners to the advanced:

Beginners: 
The larger evaluation associations run workshops alongside their annual or biannual conferences. I’ve attended these at the European Evaluation Society conference and they were very good and given by experts in the field; the same for the Australasian and American conferences:
EES workshops (from 2016 – next conference is October 2018).
AES (Australia) workshops (from 2017 – next conference is in September 2018)
AES (USA) workshops (from 2017 – next conference is in October 2018) 

Intermediate:
For longer courses (3-5 days and blended learning), INTRAC, based in UK offer some very good courses: M&E, advanced M&E, Theory of Change.

For e-learning courses, TRAASS offer a series of self-paced evaluation courses:  Evaluation report writing, Cutting-edge M&E, How to be a successful evaluation consultant, Managing the politics of evaluation.

Advanced: 

The University of Melbourne, Australia offer a fully online masters in evaluation.

Claremont Evaluation Centre in the US offers a series of workshops over six days in August 2018 that can be taken online or in person:  Basics of Evaluation & Applied Research Methods, Quasi Experimental Design, Survey Research Methods, Culturally Responsive Evaluation and more!

Full disclaimer: I am trainer for some of the TRAASS courses and have given a workshop previously at the 2017 AES (Australia) conference.
