Conducting Evaluation Virtually During Times Of Crisis And Beyond presented by Taruna Gupta

Dates: 28-29 June 2022 (course with 2 events)

Time: 9am-1pm

Evaluation is constantly evolving, as the world evolves and is faced with different crises. There has been a drive to move towards conducting evaluations remotely which has presented its own set of challenges. Many commissioners have seen this as a good opportunity to save funds and reallocate limited resources.

SAMEA spearheaded the development of a guideline on virtual evaluation and training is being developed on this. This virtual evaluation training will share methodologies for collecting and presenting evaluation data and highlight the strengths and limitations of each.

At the end of the training session, participants should have a good understanding of the different methods and tools that are available for conducting evaluation remotely and be equipped to undertake one. We welcome participants who are planning to undertake a virtual evaluation and would be willing to field test the guideline.
