Why do this course?

Development programmes working in complex environments need to understand the context they work in, monitor changes, and adapt their work accordingly. This sounds simple but is challenging in practice. What should we be measuring? What is ‘good enough’ measurement, and how do we attribute change to our programme? And – hardest of all – how do you get decision makers to change their minds?

DevLearn’s online training course answers these questions and more, using the DCED Standard for Results Measurement, a practical framework used by over a hundred programmes worldwide.

Course objectives and structure

During this course, you will:

  • Learn how to build a practical, adaptive results measurement system.
  • Develop a theory of change showing the logic of an intervention, explore the assumptions that you make in intervention design, and articulate indicators based on the results chain.
  • Understand how to select from different research techniques to measure these indicators, and attribute results to the programme.
  • Practice introducing the DCED Standard during a case study.
  • Have your questions answered online by the course facilitator and other experts working in results measurement.

This interactive and participatory course is delivered entirely online, over four weeks. Participants are expected to spend at least a day a week working on the course. Online training is cost-effective, interactive, and entertainingly delivered through videos, guided exercises, expert presentations, and group discussions.
