Project update (August 2020)

The IER research team has designed and delivered online research methods training to students working towards a Post Graduate Diploma in (Rural) Management at our partner institution, the Xavier Institute of Social Service (XISS). The three online sessions took place on 17-18th August with more than 50 students participating.

The workshops included presentations and Q&A sessions about selected qualitative and quantitative research methods and the ethical implications of conducting social research as well as discussions on how to adapt research methods to the circumstances during the Covid-19 pandemic.

As a follow-up to the training sessions students are invited to enrol on a University of Warwick Moodle, where they can access relevant resources and work on a group assignment to practise what they have learnt in the workshops.

Please do contact us if you have any questions about the project or any suggestions: or
