SEAMEO as a regional development organisation in Southeast Asia recognises the increasing relevance and importance of evaluation.  Thus, in enhancing the evaluation culture in the organisation, Training on Quantitative and Qualitative Methods in Designing Development Evaluation for SEAMEO Centres was organized by SEAMEO TROPMED Network from 4 to 8 December 2016 at The Centara Watergate Pavillon Hotel, Bangkok, Thailand. As a part of staff capacity building and centre development, SEAMEO QITEP in Science sent its staff, M. Haidar Helmi, to participate on it.

This training was a follow up activity of development evaluation workshop conducted in 2015. It was being convened to further enhance the capacities developed during the first Workshop and to complement and supplement all efforts of SEAMEO in building the capacities of SEAMEO Centres to undertake the different research and evaluation designs. The instructors on this training were Dr. Ma. Sandra B. Tempongko and Dr. Ophelia M. Mendoza both from SEAMEO TROPMED Network. This training was participated by 31 participants from several SEAMEO Centres, Universities, and Organisations.

By the end of the training, the participants should be able to compare the different quantitative and qualitative methods used in designing development evaluation as well as develop the appropriate evaluation design corresponding to the evaluation objectives and logic of change.
