IEE Research Methods Summer School – 3 and 4 September 2013

This introductory course is open to everyone and will suit those wishing to  know more about research methods in the social sciences. Attendees may include,  for example, practitioners working with children and families in the community  or schools, local level policy makers, postgraduate students.

By the end of the two-day course attendees should have a better understanding  of the research process from identifying a research question, or a problem to be  solved, through to applying research methods to answer the question and produce  evidence, and how that evidence can then be utilised to promote change in  practice or policy.
