Advanced participatory data gathering, using Ketso
|Dates:||16 May 2019|
|What is it:||Workshop|
|Organiser:||Cathie Marsh Institute for Social Research|
|Who is it for:||University staff, External researchers, Adults|
|Speaker:||Dr Joanne Tippett|
The course is aimed at researchers who wish to involve stakeholders or community members in their research, and who wish to gain skills in effective stakeholder engagement and participatory data gathering. It is suitable for those considering a wide spectrum of participatory approaches, from a stakeholder-led enquiry, to a mixed methods approach with elements of participatory data gathering.
The course will:
1. Introduce key principles of stakeholder engagement in research and explore these in the context of delegate’s research
2. Develop knowledge of participatory and action research, its challenges and opportunities
3. Develop skills in planning workshops and participatory events with stakeholders
4. Introduce Ketso as a tool for participatory data gathering through a series of practical exercises
5. Explore ways to analyse participatory data (using a spreadsheet developed for analysing data from Ketso workshops)
6. Increase participants’ awareness of research impact and ways to increase impact from research
Participants will have an opportunity to explore stakeholder engagement for their own research or upcoming projects. There will be a series of hands-on exercises and many opportunities for dialogue amongst delegates and with the course leader.
The course will use Ketso as an example of an approach to participatory data gathering, because each piece of the kit is designed to incorporate a key element that needs to be considered in designing effective workshops and focus groups. The principles taught on the course can be applied to other approaches to data gathering and participatory tools.
No prior knowledge of participatory research, facilitation, or Ketso is assumed for this course.
