A half-day training on monitoring and evaluation of gender equality policies is designed for participants with little or moderate knowledge of evaluation designs and methodologies, who are responsible for program steering and commissioning of evaluations in the field of gender equality in higher education.

Date: 7 March 2018 | 9.00 – 12.00

Venue: Austrian Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research (BMBWF) | Freyung 3, Vienna | Event rooms 2nd Floor

Trainer: Dr. Anke Lipinsky

Deadline for the registration: 22 February 2019


Key take-away

  1. Understanding (pre-)conditions for planning and commissioning meaningful and useful evaluations;
  2. Understanding strengths & limitations of different methods and types of evaluations, including impact models.


Participants will learn about the differences between monitoring and evaluation, including objectives, timing, data, and utilities of different types of evaluations. We will look into recent trends of gender equality policies in the European Research Area and understand the linkages between policy instruments, program logics and objectives, and contextual factors which play a crucial role in deciding on the type and scope of an evaluation. We will discuss the specific case of a “policy-field” being subject to an evaluation as opposed to a single program. Finally, we will create an overview on the strengths and limitations of different assessment methods and impact models. The session involves input and teamwork.

This session complements the Mutual Learning Workshop on “Monitoring and Evaluation of Gender Equality Policies”
