Welcome to our 3-month blended-learning programme. 'Making Research Work' shows you how to take an action-research approach, allowing you to become well-versed in involving and getting the commitment of stakeholders, and to jointly define and solve problems in your community. At the same time, you will get recognition for your impact on agricultural development.
This course helps you to achieve great and sustainable impact by teaching you....
You will learn about the building blocks of an action-research process and how to implement research projects in complex settings. You will learn how to involve the relevant stakeholders and motivate them to commit. You will visit and talk to stakeholders that are part of action-research processes in the Netherlands and learn about the dynamics of such a process and the roles of the various actors.
You will learn how to translate research into tangible interventions and identify relevant actors to involve and guide research processes towards successful outcomes - while keeping everybody on board.
The digital modules consist of audio and video files, transcripts, ready-made templates, background reading and practical assignments.
You will get personal feedback from the iCRA trainers and fellow trainees on your practical assignments as well as coaching - as you apply your learnings in your own context. We help you achieve your personal learning objectives and beyond
During online group mastermind sessions, you can ask all the questions you like and discuss and reflect upon common challenges with your fellow trainees and iCRA trainer.
