Mode of learning

Face To Face

Monitoring, evaluation and learning (MEL) is Clear Horizon’s blue ribbon offering. It is our most extensive and comprehensive course in which learners gain an opportunity to develop a comprehensive MEL plan for real world contexts. The course includes up to date information, with new trends and fresh learnings from the literature and our practice. It is without a doubt an intense (but practical!) course that takes you through all the twists and turns of doing MEL today.

We integrate practical techniques for bringing people along on your MEL journey and use evidence for program adaptation throughout the course. During the week you’ll be invited to develop a MEL plan for a project or program of your choosing – we can provide case studies but we encourage learners to use their own projects for maximum learning outcomes. By the end of the week, learners present their MEL plan and choose an aspect to implement over the next three months. Learners are also invited to a mentoring session after three months to help apply these concepts in the workplace.

MSC is well suited to evaluation in the complex emergent context. The latest innovation by Jess, Collaborative Outcomes Reporting (COR), is a collaborative form of impact evaluation.
