During the workshop, you will be able draft and develop your evaluation survey questions in a supportive setting with guidance from expert trainers based at the University of California (Santa Barbara) and the University of Warwick.

Short refresher presentations about questionnaires design principles and techniques will be part of the session. Also, you should bring your specific questionnaire-related evaluation concerns and challenges, so that they can be addressed.

See below for specific information about this workshop:

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