About This Workshop

This workshop provides ‘hands-on’ survey development with guidance from expert trainers based at the University of California (Santa Barbara) and the University of Warwick. The workshop is for people who have already attended questionnaire design training and wish to put their previous training into action.
The primary focus of the workshop is enabling you to develop your evaluation survey questions in a supportive setting with guidance from experts. This session will also address any specific questionnaire-related evaluation concerns and challenges that you bring to the workshop. Also, short refresher presentations about questionnaires design principles and techniques are included in the workshop.

See below for specific information about this workshop:

1. This is a hands-on workshop with a maximum number of 12 available places.

2. This hands-on workshop includes minimal pre-prepared presentations (less than 20% of the workshop).

3. You should bring existing surveys or survey questions you would like to review and improve. Or, you should come with a specific programme or project in mind that you would like to evaluate to get expert support in developing survey questions (at least 80% of the workshop).

4. Participants are expected to have previously attended a questionnaire design training session. If you have not already done so, please consider registering for the upcoming session on the 5th of September: Gentle Introduction to Survey Design for Evaluation.

5. At the end of this workshop, you will have high-quality, expert reviewed survey questions to use for your evaluation.

6. The expert trainers for this workshop are also providing each delegate with a 45-minute consultation by Skype after the training to address any further survey question support needs (available within 3 months of the workshop).
