Learn about Causal Design and get your most burning M&E questions answered.
How can burgeoning Colorado organizations meet donor’s increasing expectations for M&E? Come join Causal Design on August 19 from 12-3pm to discuss the value and standards of M&E, simple frameworks, and free resources to help design and manage your own innovative system.
The second hour will be a hands-on workshop on mobile data collection. After briefly discussing creative ways to use surveys to reduce and streamline reporting requirements, we will introduce Kobo Toolbox (Kobo is a free data collection software designed by the UN, IRC, and Harvard specifically for the international development community). Upon leaving, everyone will be comfortable setting up a simple data collection tool that works on cell phones, tablets, or laptops in remote locations. *Bring Your Laptop*
We will stick around to discuss, in open forum, or one-on-one, any ideas or concerns of participants. This can be used to get feedback on your organization’s current evaluation strategy, asking questions about other project monitoring tools, or discussing your favorite new brewery.

Causal Design partners with international development clients to provide rigorous independent program evaluation, expand cultures of evidence within organizations, and join them in efforts to relieve human suffering and end poverty. Their work has taken them around the world; inside mahogany walled boardrooms, government ministries, NGO hospital tents, and under the tin roofs of crowded slum communities. Their team is based in Washington D.C. and Colorado.
