The class covers the strategies, tools, and techniques of visual representation of data (often called data visualization). Using desktop tools available in all workplaces, participants will learn how to create effective and professional-looking displays of data that will make analysis more effective and give arguments greater clarity and credibility. The class will also cover data presentation skills, including how to present your data to an audience. The course includes applied activities in which the students practice and demonstrate their new skills. A laptop is required for this class.
Target Audience: The target audience for the session includes people who have an interest in communicating their data and their analysis in more effective, visual ways.

This hands-on class will teach participants the essentials of data design for interactive presentations on websites. Using widely available, open-source, desk-top tools students will learn how to create effective and professional-looking interactive presentations that will inform, intrigue, and inspire their readers or audience. Special emphasis will be given to graphical design, and participants will learn a wide variety of graphical techniques. The course emphasizes applied activities in which the students practice and demonstrate their new skills. A laptop is required for this class.

CLASSES IN INTERNATIONAL PROGRAM EVALUATION
**These classes are designed so that students can take more than one class and receive a discount
Cost/Benefit Analysis
Course description: Cost-benefit analysis is a foundational tool that is increasingly used to inform management decisions made by governments and international development institutions. This three-day course explores the link between program logic and cost-benefit modeling, and discusses key concepts, such as treatment of cost streams, the estimation of benefits, including where markets are imperfect or do not exist, the valuation of externalities, the treatment of unknown or unquantifiable effects, discounting, and distributional implications.
Target Audience: The course is targeted at project managers and program officers responsible for overseeing program design and implementation. The course is designed for people who have never had cost-benefit analysis before, but who want to become familiar with its fundamental concepts and to gain insights into how such models are constructed. Familiarity with economics and statistics is helpful but not required.
Instructor:  Dr. Franck Wiebe
International Program Evaluation for Managers
Course description: This two-day course is targeted at managers who want a broad overview of program evaluation. The class introduces key concepts and key questions that underpin program evaluations. The course discusses program design and implementation, the pros and cons of various methods used to evaluate policy interventions, cost-effectiveness, and cost-benefit analyses.
Target Audience: This course is intended for people who manage, but who don't necessarily execute program evaluations. No statistical background is necessary for this course.
Instructor:  Dr. Nada Eissa
