The Institute for Governance and Policy Analysis (IGPA) will be running a two day Master Class on Evidence-Based Policy Making – Methods That Matter at the University of Canberra between Wednesday 7 November to Thursday 8 November. This two-day program aims at providing participants the opportunity to expand the range and variety of methods used to gather and analyse evidence for policy making.
In this two day course we want you to be able to touch base with the latest best practice on the use of Systematic Reviews, Random Controlled Trials, the analysis of Big Data, design thinking, qualitative techniques for comparison using Boolean and fuzzy set logic, citizen science, the use narrative and visuals from policy makers and citizens and the role of deliberation in policymaking. By the end of the course you should be familiar with the basic demands of all methods and able to select a few that will really help you in your day-today work.
To launch the Master Class we will organise an initial morning session in the form of speed dating tables and you will have a chance to be briefed and ask questions about several methods as you move from table to table with sessions run by academics specialists in the method, accompanied in some case by policymakers who have used the method.
Thereafter in the first day afternoon you will get to explore various methods in greater depth. The second day will start with a group exercise where you apply the method to a policy question of interest and develop your skills and understanding in an interactive manner and in the final afternoon session we will turn to the vexed issue of how to find the right method to apply to the right policy challenge. Again there will be plenty of time for discussion and debate.
The goal is that you leave the event wiser about the range of social science methods for gaining evidence with access to resources to enable you to follow up. In addition you will have worked through the application of a particular method suited to your policy challenges. Finally you will have gained a network of contacts within the University and beyond to support your development and future work.
