From OTTConference:

This session at the OTT Conference 2021 was organised by the OTT MEL Community of Practice.

Facilitators: Rebecca Kendall (R Street Institute), Claire Luzia Leifert (German Council on Foreign Relations, DGAP), Stephan Paulsen (Southern Hemisphere), and Sarine Karajerjian (American University Beirut)

This was an interactive workshop to collaboratively explore how monitoring, evaluation and learning can become a force for change in think tanks: for individuals, programmes, and organisations – rather than a dull and cumbersome bureaucratic task. The facilitators shared their lessons learned and tools from the Community of Practice of MEL practitioners and invited others to share from their experiences. The results of the workshop will contribute to a blog series for the OTT blog.
