-Annual Evaluation Report, 2014

This is the 15th year that IPDET will offer eighty hours of instruction and hands-on learning in the fundamentals of development evaluation during the two-week Core Course (June 8 – 19), as well as 27 dynamic workshops in the two weeks that follow (June 22 – June 26; June 29 – July 3).

IPDET was developed to fill a global need that continues today for short-term, but intensive, executive-level training in development evaluation. IPDET provides managers and practitioners with the generic tools required to evaluate development policies, programs and projects at the local, national, regional and global levels. An intensive and unique training initiative of the Independent Evaluation Group of the World Bank and Carleton University, it is offered each summer at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada. We have worked to build on the successes of the past 14 programs to offer what we believe is a world-class learning experience.

IPDET is designed for development professionals who will or are conducting or managing development evaluations. Participants have come from government ministries or agencies in the developing world, development banks, the non-profit and foundation sectors, the United Nations system, as well as bilateral development agencies, universities, think tanks, and private sector consulting firms specializing in development evaluation.

Applicants can register for any combination of the program that meets their educational needs – from a two or three-day workshop to the entire four-week program. In addition to intensive learning in large and small groups, the program includes special guest speakers, networking events, participant roundtables, and more.
