Through our first project experience we realized that the Universities teach a cutting edge science but this science remains theory as the students are not taught how to turn it into practice. Hands-on tools and practical methods to manage a project are not part of the curriculum at most uni programmes.
In 2018 we therefore started to organize workshops on project managment. We invite experience lecturers while some of the topics we already feel confident enough to teach ourselves. All workshops given so far by us and together with our partner organisation from the Action Network are listed below, including the evaluations from the participants.
The main target group for our trainings are of course also international students. As for the M&E workshops we are working on a system where we match the participants with projects in their home countries. The students become junior evaluators through the skills taught by us and then get the assignment to evaluate the projects from other organisations.
