Communications monitoring, evaluating and learning toolkit
author(s):
year:
2018
place:
London
publisher:
pages:
24 p.
comment:
"This toolkit provides a framework to think about communications monitoring, evaluation and learning (MEL), and provides example questions, indicators and tools to do it. Communications MEL is, in many ways, straightforward. Yet organisations across the sector still grapple with how to embed it in their work. MEL is important to ensure that your communications are strategic, helping you to understand and learn from what works, what doesn′t, when and for whom. It is also an important tool for accountability, helping you to demonstrate uptake, and that your work is of high quality and useful. This toolkit is intended for use by communications, research and project implementation staff working in think tanks, universities and NGOs. It is based on internal guidance that ODI developed to encourage sharing and learning; to improve the quality, reach and use of its communications; and to help with project and programme planning. Communications MEL is still a work in progress at ODI; we are publishing this guide in the hope that it will be useful to others, but also that it will invite discussion and shared learning."

"The Evaluating C4D Resource Hub houses a growing collection of the best available guides, toolkits, tools and methods to use for research monitoring and evaluation (R,M&E) of Communication for Development (C4D) initiatives. The Hub is structured around two combined frameworks: C4D Evaluation Framework is an approach. It describes the values and principles that guide our decisions in C4D. The BetterEvaluation Rainbow Framework is a structure. It organises the practical tasks into seven categories or 'clusters' and provides options. The goal of the Evaluating C4D Resource Hub is to find the right kinds of options, tools and resources that suit your practical needs and match the approach you want to take."

Journalism impact primer & journalism impact toolkit
year:
[2018]
publisher:
pages:
25 p., 21 p.
comment:
"This report puts forth a Walton Family Foundation (WFF) Media Impact Framework and identifies key indicators and research methods that can be used to assess journalism investments across program areas, based on best practices in the field of media strategy and research. The companion WFF Media Impact Toolkit provides a set of steps for grantmakers to take to get from the decision to invest in media all the way to identifying the appropriate indicators, targets and baselines. The information that follows is customized to reflect WFF goals, priorities and processes, but it is our hope that other partners can utilize the materials to become more effective communicators and grantmakers. This report also provides background information about the journalistic profession, noting in particular its differences from social change and advocacy organizations. This context is especially important for framing what can be difficult conversations with journalism organizations, given their commitment to neutrality and the recent— and ongoing — upheaval in the industry."

Uso de conceptos de sistemas en el diseño de una evaluación
author(s):
year:
2017
place:
Lima
publisher:
ISBN:
978-612-45221-0-9
other ed.:
engl. ed.: Using Systems Concepts in Evaluation Design: A Workbook
comentario:
"El poder atribuir los cambios a nuestra intervención es el principal desafío de los evaluadores. Conceptos como ecacia, eciencia e impacto ocupan la atención de los evaluadores. Pero ¿este es el único enfoque para evaluar los cambios y las trasformaciones vinculadas a nuestras intervenciones? ¿Qué sucedería si consideramos a la intervención como el "cliente" y al donante como una parte interesada, junto a las comunidades y a otras instituciones y actores que puedan beneciarse o perjudicarse con el proyecto? ¿Qué pasaría si en lugar de medir impactos reexionamos sobre las consecuencias éticas y políticas de nuestra intervención?. ¿Y si ponemos en valor la sostenibilidad de los cambios en lugar de evaluar el cumplimiento (o justicar el incumplimiento) de las actividades previstas?"

M&Excel: a practical guide to building results monitoring tools in Excel
author(s):
year:
2016
place:
Eschborn
publisher:
pages:
22 p.
comment:
"This guide shows, besides other things, how to implement the traffic light function of Excel. Aside from this function, it is in general very easy to visualize information with Excel. In this respect, the progress of indicators along the results chain of a project, but also the cash flow can be graphically presented ... Another goal of this manual is to stress the point that Excel is much more than a static tool in which data can be handled in tabular format. By means of cross
-linking data, the whole monitoring system becomes dynamic so that the whole data processing works nearly automated. Time and resource intensive double entries of information can be avoided, since the majority of data can be updated, calculated and visualized automatically." (introduction)

IDEAS facilitator's guide
author(s):
year:
2016
publisher:
pages:
65 p.
comment:
"The IDEAS Facilitators′ Guide provides briefing notes on how you, as a facilitator, can support small-grant recipients to use the IDEAS Guide to clarify their project design, and to plan and manage their evaluation. The Facilitators′ Guide is best used in conjunction with the IDEAS Guide. These guides are designed to be used together in the planning and implementation of a workshop. Facilitators can also adapt the steps to suit the mode and length of delivery. The Facilitators′ Guide was developed to accompany the IDEAS Guide to help facilitators to effectively support capacity development for individuals working in grassroots and community organisations who might have little or no experience of evaluation. It may also be helpful for more experienced practitioners. The approach integrates evaluation into the design of projects." (p.4)

IDEAS guide: innovating, designing, evaluating and applying to small-scale projects. A guide for media and communication projects
author(s):
year:
2016
publisher:
pages:
73 p.
comment:
"The IDEAS Guide is for organisations and people who are doing small media and communication projects. It is designed to cater for a range of different skill levels in evaluation. It is ideal for project managers and team members responsible for reporting and evaluation, as well as any other participants who are interested in evaluation. The IDEAS Guide leads you through the process of designing a project, and thinking about the project′s evaluation. The guide is focused on how to do useful evaluation for learning and continual project improvement. To achieve this, it is important to think about the evaluation of the project as you design it, and to learn from evaluation during the implementation of the project. Focusing on what you can learn by carrying out a project is especially important when the project idea is new and innovative. " (introduction, p.5)

Changing media landscapes in transitional countries: handbook on mapping media landscapes
author(s):
year:
2016
publisher:
pages:
27 p.
comment:
"The handbook is based on the authors′ varied experiences from consulting the implementation of media mappings in several transitional countries and it will focus on two of these projects: a. mapping the Mongolian media landscape initiated in 1999 ten years after the break down of Communism and b. the mapping of the Libyan media landscape initiated in 2012 one year after the Libyan revolution in 2011 and the ouster of Muammar Qaddafi. Developing on the experiences from these two projects and subsequent reflections the authors investigate why the Mongolian project was a success and still operating and in turn why the Libyan was far less successful despite similar methodological approaches. On the basis of these experiences the authors provide a description of a number of general circumstances that the authors recommend should be taken into account before and during the process of setting up a media mapping capacity."
