Summer and Winter Schools

Summer and Winter Schools are a recent but important addition to the University of Bologna's educational offer. They are generally organised as intensive courses on various subjects designed to match specific educational and professional needs. Summer Schools may last from one to four weeks and they normally take place in the summer, mostly outside traditional academic structures.

Planning, monitoring and evaluation in development programs requires a focus on national development priorities. The definition and measurement of intended results should respect the principle of national ownership and should strengthen both institutional and human capacities for managing development initiatives. The Course aims at covering new developments in M&E techniques, like the results-based and utilization-focused approaches, the developmental evaluation approach and the outcome mapping approach.

The Course presents practical steps and examples in applying monitoring and evaluation methods to strengthen management for development results. Participants will leave with practical step-by-step guidance on how to prepare and carry out benchmarking, monitor outcomes and use information on program and project results to improve performance. Policy makers, program managers, ministerial strategy departments, and staff and consultants responsible for M&E will find this course useful. It presents analytical tools solidly grounded in economic theory applied to the practical questions of monitoring and evaluating policy programs in developing countries.
