Participative Research and Policy - A course about service users and others doing and using research together.
This course will enable you to involve policymakers, practitioners and service users in doing and using research. You will critically engage with the latest theories and debates about the relevance and application of research findings for policy, practice and personal decisions.
Participative research and policy is designed for people in public or voluntary sector organisations that are, or aspire to become, research informed. On successful completion of this course you will be able to conduct and use research collaboratively in order to promote change for better health, education or well-being.
Our online courses run for 13-15 weeks. Students work together and with tutors online, developing their thinking and plans in areas of particular interest to them. Students come from a wide range of sectors, including health care, but also social work and education. To take part you will usually need a second-class degree in health, education or another area of social science or policy, or have another professional qualification e.g. for teaching, police force, health care, social work. If you have other kinds of qualifications you may be eligible but we may ask you to take a qualifying test. You will need to be able to communicate in English and have online access (see webpages for full detail).
A wide range of research methods modules are available from the IoE. These can be taken individually or considered as optional modules for an MSc Programme of study. For further details see http://eppi.ioe.ac.uk/cms/Default.aspx?tabid=697
