Stakeholder support is crucial for the success of our research projects. But how do you help stakeholders to become involved and engaged? As researchers, we might invite stakeholders to observe interviews and testing. This is great, but there are more ways to get stakeholders’ buy-in. To do so, a researcher must wear a different hat: that of facilitator.
This 3-hour online introductory course will give you practical facilitation tips and tools. These will help you engage stakeholders at those crucial moments before and after your fieldwork. Such as when planning a research project or when sharing research insights.
In this interactive, hands-on course we will:
- Look at the differences between being a researcher and being a facilitator
- Discuss facilitation tips and tools to help you engage stakeholders
- Dive into a practical facilitation example: running a session with stakeholders to determine which questions your research should answer
