99223 Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning

Requisite(s): 99215 Sustainability in Context OR 99221 Sustainability in Context


Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning is a key part of project and policy design and implementation in government, civil society organisations and businesses. Students gain skills and knowledge to enable them to address questions such as the following: How do you know if a sustainability initiative has worked? Whether it worked or not, how do you and your organisation learn from the experience? In this subject, students draw on their understanding from studies in different disciplines, both humanistic and biophysical, to think about what kinds of indicators best enable evaluation of progress towards meeting sustainability objectives. Indicators used for sustainability can be as diverse as water quality, stakeholder satisfaction, social equity, fuel use intensity, and health statistics. Students analyse what kinds of data and methods are best suited to evaluating progress towards sustainability objectives, and how evaluation can best feed back into the policy/project cycle, to ensure effective organisational learning.
