GER521 Programme Planning and Evaluation focuses on the specialised field of programme planning and evaluation. Planning, developing the measures, writing a proposal, addressing the ethical issues, asking the right questions about programme delivery and outcome and anticipation of the hurdles would be discussed in depth. Current state of the art in practical programme evaluation will be discussed in class, with rigorous examination of alternative programme designs, modes of analysis and report writing. The political, social and technical aspects of programme implementation will be discussed in depth in class. Students may conduct a small project on programme evaluation in the community and present the proposal in class. A practical approach is adopted in teaching the module to enhance experience and confidence of students.
