The e-Learning course is free and open to all interested people. You may attend virtually from your personal or work computer anywhere in the world. The course includes online lectures, requested reading material, and simple multiple-choice tests. Participants also have the opportunity to engage in an online discussion forum. At the end of each course, if 80% of the answers on the multiple-choice test are correct, participants will be able to print out a certificate of "virtual" attendance. The course is open from: July 1- September 17, 2014.
Announcement (in English and Arabic)
On behalf of Natalia Kosheleva and Marco Segone, EvalPartners co-chairs, the Environment and Sustainable Development Unit at the American University of Beirut (AUB/ESDU) and the Middle East and North Africa Evaluators Network (EvalMENA), it gives me the great pleasure to inform you that the long-awaited e-learning course on development evaluation in Arabic is now finally online.
It can be accessed on http://www.mymande.org/elearning
This effort would have not been possible without the convergence of goodwill and tireless efforts from three main partners: the International Development and Research Center of Canada (IDRC) who has been the main driver behind the emergence of EvalMENA through continuous backstopping and support since 2008, EvalPartners who supported the Arabization of the e-learning platform on www.mymande.org (with all the technical challenges it entails) and ESDU/EvalMENA staff and members who contributed to the scientific material and the oversight of the entire project. Special thanks goes to Diana Marroush Abi-Said from the ESDU team and Celeste Serrano from UNICEF for their continuous support and patience which enabled the project to come together
We are very much convinced that the present course is only the start of an incremental process which can only grow and improve over time. We are already considering adding modules on how to establish Voluntary Organization for Professional Evaluation (VOPEs), how to engage Parliamentarians in evaluation advocacy at the national level, how to enhance capacities of national evaluation systems and much more.
We welcome your comments and suggestions on email@example.com and look forward hearing from you. Ziad Moussa. Project Manager
