Description

Are you looking to explore new, cutting edge approaches in the development sector? Join us for a journey into complexity, build new networks, and explore what SenseMaker® could do for your work… This 5 day, hands-on course offers an introduction to the principles and approaches of anthro-complexity, how these approaches compare to traditional research and survey methods, and when best to apply them. Working through ‘The Learning Power of Listening: A Practical Guide for Using SenseMaker®’ released by Oxfam and Catholic Relief Services, attendees will explore research project design, how to sample, engage stakeholders, train up interviewers, and navigate ethical issues.

About the Programme

Through a 5 day, hands-on course, you will learn the principles and approaches of anthro-complexity, how these approaches compare to traditional methods, and when best to apply them. You will learn how to design your own research project, how to sample, engage stakeholders, train up interviewers, and explore ethical issues. And you will learn how to collect and analyse data, explore a new theory of change, and  get the best out of community workshops.

The course includes access to a Community of Practice, where the guide’s co-authors and expert project leads will share their years of experience and pioneering case studies.  There will  be a chance to delve deeper into the topics discussed throughout the course, share inspiring thoughts and ideas, and raise challenges and questions with the team.

A complimentary copy of the book ‘The Learning Power of Listening: A Practical Guide for Using SenseMaker®’ released by Oxfam and Catholic Relief Services will be provided.

Please contact emma.jones@thecynefin.co for more information or to secure your place.
