TIDI / TIME / DSAI One Day Research Methodology Workshop for Development Practiontioners: "Research for Results"

Development research and practice is under increasing pressure to show ‘value for money’ as well as reliability. Academic researchers seek relevance for their research work, policy makers seek evidence based data for their policies. Practitioners, NGOs in particular are often looking at ways to deepen their understanding of research methods. This one day workshop is designed to provide a focused and intensive review of some of the main methodological issues starting off from practical research needs. It assumes an understanding of development questions but not of research methodologies as such.

Full event schedule can be found here.

Please RSVP to by Monday 2nd May.

Date: 9th May 2016; Time: 9:00 – 16:15
Venue: TRISS Seminar Room, C6.002, Arts Building, Trinity College Dublin
