Dynamics of the Course. The course will have a practical theoretical approach with a combination of synchronous and non-synchronous training instances through the ILPES ECLAC distance education platform. Synchronous instances will last for one hour and can
take place once or twice a week according to the course schedule (see section 8. Class schedule per week). The non-synchronous instances will have exchange forums, practical exercises and capsules with videos according to the themes of the corresponding class.
Practical cases. At the beginning of the course it is necessary for the participants to select a project, program and/or public policy that will serve as a practical case.. Ideally, this case should be related to the institution where the women are currently professionally inserted.
people. During the course the participants will use the project, program and/or public policy to recreate key stages in the design and/or improvement of a monitoring and evaluation system. Likewise, the final work will focus on the selected practical case (see section 9. Course Evaluation).
 The practical cases will be individual or in pairs of participants.
