Join Our 

Monitoring and Evaluation

Academy

What is the Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) Academy?

The Academy is a community of learning where like-minded professionals gather to share knowledge and expertise on Monitoring and Evaluation.

Who is the M&E Academy for?

It's for everyone.

Your job title does not have to say “M&E”, as long as you are somehow involved in measuring and reporting on the outcomes of an intervention or programme, the Academy is for you.

 

The topics we cover include gender, use of Artificial Intelligence, facilitation techniques, capturing lessons learned etc.

 

Regardless of where you are in your career, whether you're just starting out or a seasoned M&E professional, you're welcome. No prior M&E knowledge is required to be part of our community. Even if you're already an M&E expert, you'll find ample opportunities to refine your skills by becoming a member

When can I join?

Anytime.

Upon joining, your membership is valid for one month or one year (depending on the plan you purchased)

For example, if you join on a monthly plan on 10 September 2024, your membership is valid until 10 October 2024. You have the flexibility to cancel your monthly or yearly membership at anytime.

What are the benefits of being a member of the academy?

Being a member of the M&E Academy gives you the following benefits.

  • Access to over 100 infographics on M&E (all available in high definition downloadable pdf format that can be used for your trainings and reports)

  • Access to Theory of Change content (powerpoint presentations, background documents and handouts)

  • Unlimited Access to the Resource Library

  • Unlimited Access to the Member Forum to interact with other professionals

  • Being a member gives access to premium content such as certain blogs and discounts for events of affiliate partners

  • Opportunity to consult with Ann-Murray Brown and other guest speakers during monthly workshops (via Zoom)

How much is the investment in your professional growth?

I am committed to democratising knowledge in the M&E field. Geographic or financial barriers should not limit your professional growth. While others charge hundreds for conferences or restrict access behind hefty paywalls, let's break down these obstacles.

For just €7.99 per month - less than the cost of a couple of coffees - you get access to the latest developments in the field. This nominal fee ensures our platform remains sustainable, covering essential admin and hosting costs while keeping quality content flowing to you.

 

You can also opt for our annual plan at €81.50 and enjoy a 15% savings over the monthly plan. That's a full year of M&E insights for about €0.22 per day. Invest in your professional development without breaking the bank.

What sets the Academy apart from others?

The resources and workshops of the Academy de-mystify complex M&E concepts in a way that anyone can understand. Jargons and ‘mumbo-jumbo’ are broken down for academy members as we try to make M&E an inclusive space to account for neurodivergence and different educational and professional backgrounds.

Our monthly workshops, led by industry experts, offer invaluable opportunities for live interaction and personalised feedback. Join us and experience the transformative power of the M&E Academy firsthand.

Do you also offer custom training for companies and organisations?

Yes, we do. Get in touch by email info@annmurraybrown.com 

How are the topics for the workshops determined?

Members of the academy submit a topic or issue they will love to discuss. Usually it is an issue one is facing on the job. A final selection of the topic to be discussed is made from the list of topics that were submitted. Persons are not obligated to attend every workshop. However, once someone is attending a workshop, they may be given 'homework' to do beforehand so that the session is participatory.

When do the monthly workshops  take place?

The group calls take place on a day in the last week of the month. The times will vary to accomodate persons in different times zones. Special considerations are made for persons based in Australia and Asia.

How do I access the M&E Academy?

First, you click the 'Join M&E Academy Now' button below. After you have paid, you log into the webite (www.annmurraybrown.com) using the same email address you used to make the payment. Once you log in, you click the "M&E Academy" tab from the menu. You will then have access to the M&E Academy (see screenshot below).

Do I get a certificate for being a member of the academy?

This can be arranged upon request. Certificates are only available for members with a yearly subscription.

Are there any scholarships available?

At the moment there are no scholarships available.

Are the monthly workhops/webinars recorded?

Yes. As persons are in different times, not everyone will be able to attend the live sessions. Therefore all sessions are recorded and placed in the Academy. This way members can watch (or re watch) at their convenience. 

How do I access the monthly workhops/webinars?

Please be advised that in order to join the  monthly group calls/ webinars you will need to make/have a Zoom account. Ideally, the Zoom account should be the same email address  you used to purchase the membership. However, if you use a different email address for your Zoom account let me know so I can send the Zoom calendar invitations to that email address.
