Workshop: Building a Theory of Change for Your Research | Michael Aird | EAG DC 22
Manage episode 359549826 series 2182813
Research can be hugely impactful, but almost all research isn't. One thing that can help maximize the impact of your research — including via improving your career trajectory — is developing an explicit theory of change. In this workshop, Michael provides an overview of what theories of change are, why they’re often useful for research, how to build one, and will provide an opportunity to practice applying these concepts. (It’s helpful, though not required, to watch the workshop with a research project idea in mind.)
