Monitoring, Evaluation & Learning(MEL) for WaSH

After internal research and review The Water Institute is piloting an online Monitoring Evaluation and Learning (MEL) distance learning course for WaSH professionals. We are inviting interested professionals to register for course modules and to provide feedback. The Water Institute is looking for a diverse cohort of participants from the WaSH sector to learn and share ideas through our Virtual Learning Center (VLC). An application is not required to participate in the pilot and fees do not apply at this time.

Stay tuned for Module #9

Course Format

This self-paced online training course is delivered through 10 modules. The course is designed to be flexible, so participants can register for individual modules or complete the entire training. Modules are released monthly accompanied by online discussions with colleagues and subject matter experts. Module materials will remain available on the Virtual Learning Center (VLC) indefinitely.

Each topic is outlined in a practical format, designed for both those participants wanting to increase their knowledge of MEL and those seeking an introduction to the subject.
