Program Design, Monitoring and Evaluation (1) This course helps students develop a thorough understanding of qualitative and basic quantitative tools and approaches to international program evaluation. With needs, priorities, and agendas contested across political scales and economic sectors, evaluation is not only a technically demanding exercise; it is an intensely political process. Students develop skills in understanding methodological as well as epistemological and ontological underpinnings of program evaluation and how these influence research design and data interpretation; designing research for evaluative purposes and critically assessing its validity, reliability, efficiency, and effectiveness; reading and coding data, developing report outlines, and presenting findings in appropriate formats. In addition to skill development, the course also challenges students in their roles as development practitioners to identify ethical dilemmas in the context of evaluation and to reflect on appropriate responses. The course includes brief lectures, in-class exercises, problem sets, a real world case study, and discussion in groups and plenary. Prerequisite: SIS-600.

Through interactive exercises, students learn the foundational principles of cultural responsiveness, drawing on illuminative case studies from the international development, international education, and global health fields. Students learn how to co-create program goals, structures, implementation plans, and evaluation metrics that emerge from and resonate with the cultural and community contexts they are designed to support. Students also practice implementing these skills by designing (or re-designing) culturally-responsive programs, drawing from previous field experiences, or by fleshing out original program ideas.
