The Impact Evaluation Summer School is a unique opportunity for development practitioners, NGO personnel, and policy makers interested in acquiring the skills needed to conduct, evaluate, and manage impact focused research. While the course will draw heavily on examples from developing countries, the content is relevant to many contexts and will be of interest to domestic policy makers and NGOs, and a broad range of PhD students.

The Summer School embraces mixed methods combining the quantitative expertise of TIME with international expertise in qualitative methods. Upon completion, participants will:

  1. Understand various techniques of impact evaluation and the criteria used to select the appropriate method;
  2. Understand the practical challenges of implementation;
  3. Develop skills to design impact evaluations;
  4. Acquire tools necessary to be critical of impact evaluation research.

The summer school will be run over three days, 26th to 29th August in Trinity College Dublin, and will be preceded by an optional one-day statistics boot-camp to help prepare participants with less quantitative backgrounds. The course will include a mix of lectures and group work. The lectures will cover both experimental (e.g. randomized control trials), and quasi-experimental (e.g. regression discontinuity designs) quantitative methods as well as qualitative methods and the interaction between the two. Sessions will be interactive with participants working in groups to solve exercises based on the methodologies that have been introduced. More information can be found here.

To apply please send a short CV to impactevaluation@tcd.ie

As places are limited, we encourage interested applicants to apply as soon as possible. Please also indicate in your email whether or not you will attend the Statistics Boot-Camp. Applications will be assessed on a rolling basis and should be submitted no later than July 20th , 2019. Applicants should have a Bachelor’s degree or equivalent. All applicants will be informed of their acceptance onto the course by email. 

In addition to the core summer school, we are also offering an additional workshop in applied evaluation methods in health which will take place on August 30th. This workshop will be focused on recent impact evaluations that have been carried out in the field of health. Sessions will build on the evaluation methodologies that were introduced in the summer school and will discuss how they can be applied to the field of health. In addition, the workshop will discuss recent evidence on policies in health that have been found to be most effective, and why. If you are interested in attending the workshop, please indicate it in your application for the summer school.
