The objective of this workshop is to give participants an overview of impact evaluation and to help them design evaluations for their own projects. The workshop focuses on the use of impact evaluation to inform policy-making and program design. This one-week workshop includes sessions on designing evaluations and building results chains;  taught through a mix of lectures, small and large group discussions, and hands-on application of practical skills in impact evaluation, to participants’ own projects.
 
The workshop is targeted to intact task teams composed of government policymakers, technical staff, as well as World Bank task team leaders. The workshop is a highly interactive mix of small and large group sessions involving the “hands on” application of what is learned throughout the week.  The first day is a plenary discussion for all participants.  On days 2 and 3, participants choose between parallel tracks -- one targeted to policy makers, one targeted to researchers –- which cover the same topics, but with different degrees of econometrics.  Both tracks are designed to ensure consistency and the diffusion of key messages to both groups. From the very first day of the workshop until the last one, participants (policymakers, technical staff and World Bank task team leaders) will work together as project teams with expert moderators on the “hands-on” design of a high quality impact evaluations and implementation plans for their projects.  On the final day of the workshop, the teams present their proposed evaluation plans to the whole group and receive guidance from each other and the course moderators.
