Online Evaluation Offerings Expand as Claremont Graduate University Partners with UNICEF and the Rockefeller Foundation

UNICEF, the Rockefeller Foundation and Claremont Graduate University, in partnership with IOCE and DevInfo, are pleased to announce a series of live webinars on “Emerging Practices in Development Evaluation”. This series has allowed us to expand greatly on our previous online offerings, and includes a range of guest speakers with experience in development evaluation. Please see the full program below.

These webcasts are free and open to the general public. Recent webcasts have reached full capacity (setting a record for these events with UNICEF and My M&E), but we are pleased to offer archived video of the sessions below for those unable to attend the live events.

Live attendees (who have joined the series from their personal computers from all corners of the globe) are able to ask questions of the presenters during the sessions, and to provide their own comments.

No prior registration is required. Follow the links below for more information, and feel free to contact us at john.lavelle@cgu.edu with any questions prior to the event.

Summer Professional Development Workshop Series
