Operational Implementation plan
The implementation of the AfrEA School of Evaluation is managed by the AfrEA Secretariat and the Program Committee of the AfrEA Board. AfrEA Regional Representatives provide support which takes care of the organizational aspects, including the mobilization and enrollment of practitioners, the logistical aspects (identifying partner academic institutions and identifying qualified facilitators. The courses will begin with the web-based models where practitioners will have the opportunity to acquire skills online utilizing a learning management system.
The course structure is flexible, self-paced, synchronous and asynchronous to allow practitioners to participate at their pace and levels. As the courses progress, face to face models will be launched in partnership with African academic and or professional institutions.
AfrEA seeks to establish Strategic Partnerships with other capacity building institutions or like-minded institutions: ACBF, GIMPA, CLEAR, ICED, IPDET, IDEP, USAID, etc. In these partnership agreements, AfrEA will either become co-facilitators or co-organizers of existing capacity building programs and or endorse the curriculum of existing capacity building programs. The curriculum will have to be AfrEA compliant with a focus on Made in Africa Evaluation principles and approaches. AfrEA will contribute to these partnership trainings through a review and approval/endorsement of curriculum and or provide specialist trainers or facilitators.
