Open class deepens discussion of monitoring and evaluation of public policies
Fundação Getulio Vargas’ Sao Paulo School of Economics (FGV EESP) is holding an open class as part of its “Monitoring and Evaluation of Public Policies” course on April 14, at 11 am. It will be livestreamed on FGV’s YouTube channel.
The event will present this new online course, available on the FGV Executive Education platform, which aims to teach students key concepts in this field and allow them to understand the importance of monitoring and evaluation for evidence-based management. Lycia Lima, a professor at FGV EESP and the deputy director of the school’s Center for Learning on Evaluation and Results for Brazil and Lusophone Africa (CLEAR), will teach an open virtual class in which she introduces the field of monitoring and evaluation.
André Portela, the director of CLEAR and a professor at FGV EESP, and Gabriela Lacerda, CLEAR’s executive manager, will also participate. Portela says that the event is in line with one of the center’s missions, which is to spread a culture of evidence-based decision making. “Increasing the number of monitoring and evaluation specialists is essential to implement efficient public policies. The countries where CLEAR operates are already accelerating toward better monitoring and evaluation systems, and initiatives like this contribute to the development of the ecosystem. It is gratifying to see CLEAR supporting this process,” he says.
The course consists of recorded classes, taught by researchers associated with CLEAR, and it features case studies, a recommended reading list, exercises and a coursebook. The content is available free of charge and those who complete the course and pass its modules will receive a declaration of participation.
