Short course events

Beyond Surveys complements the very successful two week Impact Evaluation short course which this year runs from 08-19 June. An individual may participate in both courses if they wish to do so but should be aware that there will be some overlap in materials. The course is introductory and primarily designed for people who have limited knowledge of evaluation adn are beginning to use 'small n' approaches in their work rather than experienced practitioners.

1 June 2015 - 9:00pm to 5 June 2015 - 5:00pm

This 5-day course on Impact Evaluation Design will provide researchers, project managers and practitioners with the necessary methodology and practical knowledge to meet the growing demand for rigorous evaluation of development programmes. The course leader is Edoardo Masset.
