Data collection is an essential part of humanitarian projects. Yet, affected communities are often treated as passive respondents, and overlooked when it comes to humanitarian project design. In this online training, you will get an overview on different participatory data collection methods (traditional and innovative, remote and on-the-ground) and get the opportunity to practice them. The training consists of four half-day online sessions on November 2nd, 16th, 28th and Dezember 6th; please note, however, that homework tasks will be assigned after each session. We estimate that each task will take you a maximum of 120 minutes to complete.
This training is part of the aha’s certification program and is eligible for a Certificate of Advanced Studies in the area of “Foundations of Humanitarian Action”.
