'Real world research': an opportunity to explore challenges and creativity in addressing social research problems

Friday 15th February

A one day workshop 10.30-15.30 (with coffee from 10.00)

This workshop will involve the Managing Director of an independent consulting organisation which has worked for many years with a range of government and non-government organisations on research design and evaluations (both within and outside the UK).

The workshop will involve a short talk about general principles of evaluation research from Mark Liddle, and then participants will be divided into small interdisciplinary groups to prepare research and evaluation designs - utilising issues drawn from the real world of social policy. In the afternoon, each group will present its design/evaluation proposal and receive feedback from Mark.

Lunch will be provided.
