Drawing insights from qualitative interviews, participatory methods and case studies is critical for informing the work of social sector organisations. However, often these get reduced to anecdotes, testimonials and case stories.
Inviting participants for a webinar where our faculty members Porag Shome, Rajesh Joseph, Anuradha Nagaraj and Ashok Sircar will discuss how you can deploy participatory methods and develop case studies systematically to improve programme outcomes.
Participants will learn about how and when to use these techniques, with the aim of better programme design, planning and evaluation.
All social sector members, activists and researchers are welcome. If you are someone who uses these methods regularly but is looking to improve your impact on the ground or simply reimagine how it can be done or, if you are someone who has less familiarity with these methods but wants to understand their potential, please join us!
We look forward to your participation.
