Tania Mahmoud comments on her experience of a session on evaluation, in her blog
‘I just completed a two-part evaluation workshop led by Gerri Moriarty on evaluation. It was really useful as not only did Gerri outline the essentials of evaluation, documentation and monitoring, but she also – dare I say it – makes those areas fun!'

One issue I raised was that not all of my data was quantitative – how do we evaluate non-falsifiable data? That is when we were introduced to ‘Triangulation’. The concept is simple: verify by gaining 3 perspectives including the facilitator’s perspective, the group leader’s and the participants’. If all three points of views correlate then our opinions hold weight.

Months later, Tania was blogging ‘ It has been a while since my really exciting training session with Gerri Moriarty which looked at Monitoring, Documenting and Evaluating work and well, I have to be honest… I was dreading it a little! It was only when I forced myself to sit down and write for a full day  - on the sofa, in my pyjamas with plenty of snacks to keep me going – that the realisation kicked in: I quite like doing evaluative reports!’
Gerri also leads more practical kinds of training, as the picture below illustrates!
