This training by ResultsinHealth from 3-5 October 2016 (Netherlands) explores one of the most recent monitoring and evaluation approaches for development which combines Participatory Video (PV) and the Most Significant Change (MSC) technique; PVMSC.
"Participatory Video and Most Significant Change Technique is more than an evaluation technique. It is communication, community mobilisation and advocacy, all in one"
Registration Closes: 20 September 2016
You can also learn more about Most Significant Change and Participatory Video separately on Mesh. Read our Mesh Most Significant Change resources or visit our category on digital storytelling (which is synonymous with participatory video).
You can still browse dozens of new resources on how to evaluate community engagement using our handy evaluation map to find what you need which we will continue to add to as you send us your additions and comments.
We also added a host of new resources and Mesh introductions to approaches and methods in evaluation including Outcome Mapping, Theories of Change and Stories of Impact alongside other sets of guides, tools and case studies like evaluating arts based engagement and guides to starting out your evaluation.
Keep sending us your resources and ideas for the evaluation map so that we can build the Mesh evaluation landscape together.
SciDev.Net has published a new online media training course for scientists, with discounts available for scientists from the global south.
