Target Audience: Academics and Research Support Staff
The workshop provides an introduction to the Theory of Change's approach and its use in Research for Development, using the University of Strathclyde-led "One Ocean Hub" as a case-study. It guides participants through the key steps of developing a Theory of Change, using a fictional but realistic Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) application case for Support.
As a result of the workshop, participants are expected to gain:
- A better understanding of the benefits of using Theory of Change approach in the design and management of their research;
- Familiarity with the key elements and steps in developing a ToC;
- Enhanced confidence in engaging with ToC approaches in their own research.
