This class is being organised by the Evidence Exchange programme in association with ACOSVO and Evaluation Support Scotland, and is supported by Carnegie UK Trust.

The masterclass is an expertly designed and facilitated learning experience based on the evidence of what works to support professional development and behaviour change.

Participants will be set a challenge that requires them to ask questions, consider a range of evidence and deliberate over the best course of action. At the end of the workshop they will share their decision – and their evidence-based rationale – with the group.

Learners will be coached and facilitated by a team from the Alliance for Useful Evidence who will create a rich, collaborative learning environment that supports them to reflect on:

  • the benefits and challenges of using research evidence in developing policy and guidance
  • their own insights and experiences of evidence based policy development
  • the strengths and limitations of different research methods, and what evidence might be useful in which circumstances.

Attendees will come away with greater confidence to find and apply evidence in the real world. They will be able to ask the right questions of research evidence, and know what they are looking for.
