Everyone talks about measurement and evaluation (M&E) like it matters. Yet, few of us do it well or even at all with ICT projects. So why should we measure and evaluate? How can we go about it? And what are the industry best practices, applied to the uniqueness of ICT?
Our goal is to explore research design and data collection methods that are applicable to ICT within practical field realities like time, money, politics, and ethics, and emerge with efficient M&E tools and processes we can use in ICT proposals and projects. To get us there, we’ll have two esteemed experts leading us in a discussion around M&E and ICT in our next Technology Salon:
- Raul Roman is a specialist in research methods and evaluation approaches in developing country contexts, an Adjunct Professor of International Development at SAIS-Johns Hopkins, and co-founder of UBELONG.
- Neeran Saraf consults on impact and monitoring and evaluation systems and knowledge management for the likes of the World Bank and a number of international NGOs.
Please join Raul and Neeran in a vibrant conversation with your peers at a new Technology Salon location:
