This one-of-a-kind book fills a gap in the literature by providing readers with a systematic approach to monitoring and evaluation (M&E) training for programs and projects. Bridging theoretical concepts with practical, how-to knowledge, the authors draw upon the scholarly literature, applied resources, and over 50 years of combined experience to provide expert guidance that can be tailored to different M&E training needs and contexts, including those for novices, professionals, organizations and their staff, community members, and other groups with a desire to learn and sustain sound M&E practices.
Activities in which learner’s themselves present training content.
Learner presentations allow learners to organize and articulate learning content for their own understanding and retention. These activities are learner centered and empowering, drawing upon learners’ own experiences and background, encouraging peer learning and cooperative group work (Adult Learning Principles 4, 5, and 11; Chapter 4, Table 4.4). When planned with recommended time limits, they are useful to equally distribute and ensure learner participation and engagement
Learner presentations are limited to smaller groups, as it take time for everyone to prepare and participate. They may be intimidating for certain learners, and accuracy and effectiveness of presentations and learning may be compromised. As with lecture activities, learner presentations can have low interaction and passive learning for non-presenters.
