The DevInfo Regional Training is designed to provide participants
with the necessary capacity to use DevInfo technology to create
databases for monitoring human development. The focus of the
training is on strengthening the capacity of UN Country Teams and
government partners in the use of data for strategic planning.
At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to use
DevInfo technology to create a customized adaptation of a DevInfo
database using core features of the Database Administration
Module. The participants will be given the opportunity to test
their knowledge and presentation skills.
The participants should be proficient in the use of MS Office, in
particular MS Excel and MS PowerPoint, and in managing files in
MS Windows File Explorer. In addition, participants should have
good communication skills. Experience in making presentations for
large audiences would be an asset. Some knowledge of DevInfo User
and Admin Modules would be an asset but not a requirement.
Summary of Agenda
The participants will learn core features of the technology, and,
towards the end of the workshop customize an adaptation of a
DevInfo database on a theme of their interest. They will then
present their database to the group.
