Research is a core area in development and humanitarian programming. Some of the research activities normally undertaken by various programs to promote evidence-based planning include assessments, surveys and evaluations. These activities employ qualitative and quantitative research methodologies. Qualitative research aims at generating an in-depth understanding of a specific program activity or event, rather than surface description of a large sample of a population. On the other hand, quantitative research focuses on gathering, analyzing and presenting numerical data and generalizing it across groups of people to explain a particular phenomenon.
Given the great significance of research in development and humanitarian work, we have planned a five-day training on Qualitative and Quantitative Research Methodologies (QQRM). The training aims at equipping participants with current knowledge, skills and best practices on research to improve the quality of their overall programming.
This five-day course aims at building the knowledge and competencies of participants on qualitative and quantitative research methods, through a combination of in-house training, practical field exercises and critique of the field work.
UN, Government and NGO staff including but not limited to program coordinators, project managers and officers.
The training method of delivery will consist of interactive webinar sessions, documentaries, articles, reference materials, quizzes and assessments.
The training cost is US$ 400 and it covers the tuition fees, learning materials and certification. Further information will be provided upon inquiry.
We can provide your organization a tailor-made training with similar content but addressing your specific capacity needs. In case you want to explore this option, you can contact us to share with you a proposal for that training.
