OTT Conference 2021: think tanks and change
Welcome to the OTT Conference 2021, co-hosted by the German Council on Foreign Relations (DGAP).
This year, the conference’s main topic is think tanks and change.
Last year we hosted our first online conference, which we split into three online events. We welcomed hundreds of thinktankers, think tank scholars, funders and policymakers from around the world. You can read more about the 2020 events (and watch the recordings) here.
15:00 – 16:00
Monitoring, Evaluation & Learning as a force for change, organised by the OTT MEL Community of Practice
Facilitators: Rebecca Kendall (R Street Institute), Claire Luzia Leifert (German Council on Foreign Relations, DGAP), Dena Lomofsky (Southern Hemisphere), Sarine Karajerjian (American University Beirut)
This is an interactive workshop to collaboratively explore how monitoring, evaluation and learning can become a force for change in think tanks: for individuals, programs, and organisations – rather than a dull and cumbersome bureaucratic task. We will share our lessons learned and tools from the Community of Practice of MEL practitioners and are curious to learn from your experiences. The results of the workshop will contribute to a blog series that we are planning to publish on the OTT blog.
