For professionals interested in using Participatory Video (PV) for monitoring and evaluation, InsightShare is hosting an Online Live Course starting on May 10th, 2022.

The course includes 5 live sessions on the 10th, 12th, 17th, 19th and 24th of May 2022 from 11:30 am to 1 pm (UK time). We recently opened registrations for this course; and the deadline to register is the 28th of April 2022.

What is PVMSC (Participatory Video & Most Significant Change)?

Our live online course can help you get started with Participatory Video and Most Significant Change, our skilled trainers will guide you through the PVMSC process for you to learn how to assess when PVMSC is appropriate as well as to design a PVMSC process as part of a wider M&E strategy. The course also includes advice on how to make the most of a process that can simultaneously be an M&E activity, a programmatic intervention and an advocacy exercise.

Over the past 12 years of developing our PVMSC process, we have seen that it can create an invaluable space for organisations to learn through reflection and reshaping of programmes in line with participants’ values. We have been asked on numerous occasions to provide guidance on using PV for monitoring and evaluation so we felt it was time to share our learning.

In December 2015 we launched our PVMSC toolkit to help spread the method. You can download a free copy here.
