You asked for it, and we listened! June 1st we are hosting a summer Toolkit Workshop focusing on research methods!
Description: Doing Research – Focus Groups and Other Methods
This interactive workshop will provide you with an overview of the role of research in your work with attention to focus groups as a research tool: what they are, why might you conduct one, how to analyse data and the advantages and disadvantages of the method. Participants will learn what sort of qualitative data can be gathered through focus groups and how to analyse and use it. Through interactive small-group activities, participants will apply the knowledge gained in the session and get hands on experience with the method.
