The Children’s Research Network is holding a practical workshop on 'Practitioner Research and applying research to practice'. This will take place at our office in 9 Harcourt Street, Dublin 2 on Thursday, 21st September 5-7pm (NOTE! Different time than usual). 

This is the sixth workshop in the CRN Research Skills Summer School, aimed at practitioner researchers and research interested professionals, including early years educators, international development practitioners, social workers, youth workers, teachers, research consultants and early career academics. The School consists of a series of workshops held on Thursday evenings, including sessions on sampling and recruitment; data collection methods; data analysis and training in different software packages; practitioner research; introduction to statistical analysis; ethics; and conducting literature searches and reviews. The workshops will also include a session on EBSCO, which has just been launched as a new CRN offer to members. Dates and facilitators will be confirmed soon.

In this workshop on practitioner research and applying research to practice, participants will get the chance to work with Emer Ring from Mary Immaculate College and acquire techniques in conducting research as part of their everyday practice, as well as applying research to their practice.
