Evaluation as a scientific means to describe and assess interventions is gaining relevance worldwide. The needs for qualified evaluation professionals are increasing in Uganda, too. However, at the moment these needs cannot be satisfied due to lack of training- and evaluation programs in this region. It is for this reason that the BMZ together with CEval and GIZ initiated a program for developing evaluation capacities in Uganda. The most important component of this program is the development and implementation of a master course in evaluation in the blended-learning format at Uganda Technology and Management University (UTAMU) in Kampala, Uganda. Blended-learning is an innovative concept which is gaining popularity worldwide and is now the default means of teaching at UTAMU. Blended-learning unites traditional face-to-face classes with modern forms of e-learning in a didactical coherent way. An advantage of this concept is, that it is possible not only for Ugandan students to attend classes but also for all students of English-speaking African countries. The Master of Evaluation of Saarland University in cooperation with HTW Saarland serves as a template for the Ugandan Master, which will be introduced in fall 2015. The contents of the master program have been developed in cooperation with CEval GmbH, the teachers of the German master as well as Ugandan contact persons of Makarere University and have been adapted to the Ugandan context. The Ugandan Master of Monitoring and Evaluation will comprise 15 modules in total, seven of which are in compliance with the basic teaching program of evaluation at Saarland universities. This is to ensure that all topics relevant to acquire profound knowledge in the field of evaluation are covered. UTAMU has complemented this program with further modules regarding project management, monitoring as well as business start-up consulting. The modules are roughly comprised of web-based trainings, e-tutoring and face-to-face seminars. The teaching concepts have also been developed in cooperation with all stakeholders. The GIZ is responsible for the technical implementation of the e-learning concepts. Two modules of the master of evaluation have been tested in an experimental phase together with UTAMU. During this experimental phase e-tutoring as well as the face-to-face seminars have been supervised in the tandem-principle by teachers of UTAMU and Saarland University/HTW. The hosting of the online study course has been undertaken by the GIZ platform GC 21. In a next step, the seven modules have been integrated into the already existing UTAMU master and the new course of study has been submitted to the responsible committees. The course of study is now aggregated and will be introduced experimentally. A decision about whether the course of study will be continued and which modifications would be necessary for this procedure, will be made in December 2016.
