Mahmoud comments on her experience of a session on evaluation, in her blog http://reintegrationmcr.wordpress.com:
‘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!
