CC&DW’s Creative Data Collection Tools course will introduce you to creative ways for collecting and presenting data. This popular and unique course received very positive feedback from participants in 2016. So don’t delay, sign up today!
There is significant value in using creative methods in research and evaluation processes. This is particularly relevant when sensitive issues or vulnerable populations are involved, when issues are complex, nuanced or multi-faceted, and when researchers need to document and disseminate research findings and present data in a fresh, engaging and innnovative way.
Creative data collection tools enable the researcher to circumvent issues associated with conducting formal interviews, such as time constraints (e.g. mind mapping instead of interviewing) and spatial constraints (e.g. take-home methods such as diary keeping). There are numerous other benefits, which we will share with you on the course.

During the two day workshop, you’ll be introduced to a range of creative, yet rigorous methods which you can use in future to collect, analyse, and present credible qualitative data.
At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Select an appropriate creative, qualitative data collection method for the research question being investigated or evaluation being conducted;
  • Gain an in-depth understanding of various creative tools to collect qualitative data, such as storyboards, the use of diaries, appreciative inquiry, and transect walks, to name a few;
  • Embed creative data collection in the research process in a way that facilitates analysis and improved reporting; and
  • Gain skills in how to maximize the impact of the data collected through effective visualisation.

Who should attend: government employees, consultants, graduates and students of M&E, local and international funders, and NGO employees in the development sector.
