Event description

Description

Course Content

Good policy making is grounded in the everyday realities of our public services. One of the most effective ways to uncover these is by asking good questions of people on the ground, and of yourself.

This workshop will teach you how to ask better questions through a toolkit of qualitative methods, including:

  • ethnography

  • interviews, and

  • surveys

You will learn how to combine these methods to understand the perspective of systems and end users. You will also learn how to share qualitative findings in a way that makes them compelling and easily understood.

Who is this course for?

This workshop is suitable for all members of the VPS (recommended for VPS4-6).
