CPD Methods for Evidence and Evaluation,
Spring – Summer 2024

CPD Methods for Evidence and Evaluation

Following the success of our Social Research Methods taster day, last autumn, the Social and Economic Research Unit (SERU), at the Institute of Cornish Studies, The University of Exeter, are very pleased to announce a spring – summer programme of CPD training days in Evidence and Evaluation.

A key aim of SERU is to build and support a robust and autonomous research culture in Cornwall. These sessions are, then, aimed at organisations who need or wish to undertake research to support their activities. This might be to understand their client base better, to explore the local conditions in which they operate, to support grant bids or project evaluation.

No previous knowledge of research is required and alongside the sessions themselves. SERU colleagues will be pleased to advise on possible research organisations might wish to undertake.

The course will be taught by Prof. Malcolm Williams with special guest senior lecturer Dr Charlotte Brookfield for the last session.

Course attendees will receive a certificate of achievement for continuous professional development purposes.

Here are some of the testimonials from our taster day:

“Thoroughly enjoyed the course and it was very relevant to my work”

“The analysis and techniques for collecting data, tying it into social and economic priorities chimed very strongly with our own organisational needs, and my role in the organisation.”

“I thought it was excellent, very high quality. I think there are many organisations and many employment roles that would benefit from this training and pay for their staff to have it.”

“Insightful, knowledgeable, educational, inspiring, quality learning experience”

A Certificate of Attendance will be give to participants who attend each session.
