Evaluation of Humanitarian Action with ALNAP (Active Learning Network for Accountability and Performance in Humanitarian Action)

9-11 November 2009

This course is an introductory-to- intermediate level course and has the overall aim of making evaluations of humanitarian action more effective in contributing to the improved performance of interventions and to improve the quality of the evaluation process. This 3-day training course is based on an update of the ALNAP training modules. The course will also introduce some new material, specifically:

* on joint evaluations: the rationale, experience and learning to date, interwoven throughout the training programme

* on evaluating policy as well as projects and programmes

* on innovative learning processes as part of the evaluation process.

Based on Channel Research’s experience of running training programmes on evaluation, this course will be open to evaluators, managers and users of evaluations. It presents an opportunity for learning and exchange between participants from different backgrounds and who play different roles. The course is facilitated by Channel Research, Margie Buchanan Smith and John Cosgrave. It will be held near Brussels.

Advanced Humanitarian Action Evaluation Practice and Ethics with ALNAP (Active Learning Network for Accountability and Performance in Humanitarian Action)

12-13 November 2009

This advanced training in the Evaluation of Humanitarian Action focuses on dealing with practical challenges in evaluation. This is the first follow up course on the training in Evaluation of Humanitarian Action. This workshop is for those with extensive experience of evaluating humanitarian action, either as an evaluator or an evaluation manager. It will provide an opportunity for participants to reflect on their own

evaluation experience and to use this and the experiences of their peers to improve their own work.

The course will focus on areas which often pose challenges for evaluators and evaluation managers. It will also equip participants with a range of evaluation and evaluation management tools and resources, so that those who wish can deepen their knowledge of Particular aspects of evaluation. The course is built around responses from ALNAP members to a survey earlier this year and will touch base on Real-time evaluation, joint evaluation, the question of utilization of evaluation and provide guidance on ethical issues in evaluation.

The course will take place close to Brussels and will be led by Margie Buchanan-Smith and John Cosgrave, two humanitarian evaluators whose broad experience will ground the course.
