DSAI Research Methods Summer School

“ICT and Development Research: New Opportunities and Research Methods”

Date: Tuesday 27th & Wednesday 28th June 2018  

Time: 09:00 – 17:00

Venue: TRISS Seminar Room, Arts Building, Trinity College Dublin

The aim of this Summer School is to explore research methods for development.  There will be a particular focus on how technology is changing research methods in the field, and the potential of ICT for advancing global development and justice (ICT4D).  The summer school has been designed to follow the DSAI Research Methods Summer Schools held in 2016 and 2017. It will consider methodology and methods in both quantitative and qualitative projects, and monitoring and evaluation.  There will be practical sessions on improving our use of data for decision making and we will also explore the challenges and opportunities that arise when technology and gender issues combine.

Anyone with an interest in this range of topics is welcome to attend.  The objective is to provide an overall sense of both academic and practical research methods which are applicable to development and humanitarian research and reporting efforts, as well as a platform for input and discussion among both academics and practitioners.

This workshop will run for two days and will cost €100 to participate.   A sandwich lunch is included. Space on this workshop is limited. Register via Eventbrite at: https://www.eventbrite.ie/e/dsai-research-methods-summer-school-tickets…
