“Things get done only if the data we gather can inform and inspire those in a position to make [a] difference.” – Mike Schmoker, former school administrator, English teacher and football coach, author.
Feedback forms are commonly used among community groups. We all spend our precious resources to collect information from users. But is this information being effectively used by your organisation? Is your organisation collecting the data which will be able to answer important questions and demonstrate your impact? Choosing the right methods and designing the proper tools to collect useful data is crucial for generating information that will be able to create a learning culture and inform decision making processes within the organisation.
Together, we will explore a wide range of tools and methods of data collection, such as surveys, questionnaires, focus groups and other methodologies. During the workshop we will discuss the pros and cons of the different tools and the importance of planning and considering the right questions.
This course is designed for those who already have an understanding on how to create an outcomes framework, but are new to data collection methods.
On completion of this workshop you will be able to:
Understand the different types of methods and tools for data collection available
Learn how to develop indicators for your work
Understand what source of information you will need to collect
Choose the most appropriate data collection methods to meet the needs of your organisation
