The Centre for Evaluation promotes the continued development of the school’s activities in teaching Evaluation methods through a number of ways.
Evaluation of Public Health Interventions
This module is offered both face-to-face, taught at LSHTM, or as distance learning.
The Centre played a central role in the development of this Masters Program module by bringing researchers across faculties to produce the teaching material and deliver teachings.
The aim of this module is to help students understand what evaluation is, when it can be used and to provide students with the knowledge and skills to design an evaluation of a public health programme or policy tailored to the specific research question and contextual factors at play.
Short courses on evaluation methods are offered by both LSHTM and external organisations. These week long courses provide opportunities to study evaluation methods in-depth, including: conducting systematic reviews and design & analysis of cluster randomised and stepped wedge trials.
Evaluation for Development Programmes
In collaboration with other University of London institutions, the Centre contributes to the LIDC Short Course "Evaluation for Development Programmes”.
This week long course will equip international development professionals working in NGOs, government agencies, academia and beyond with valuable skills to evaluate the impact of programmes and projects. During the course participants will work in groups to develop an evaluation protocol for a development project.
