Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning for Development (MELD) Seminar
This seminar is focused on the real world of international development monitoring, evaluation, and learning (MEL). This is an applied course that covers the landscape of international development funding and research organizations. In addition to the actors involved in international development MEL, this seminar covers “getting the work” (responding to a solicitation for MEL activities), as well as “doing the work” (design and implementation of selected international development MEL projects). Because the topics covered are very broad, this seminar provides a high-level overview of the international development MEL landscape, and does not focus on the details of specific evaluation methods.
