Every field research done by CRERD starts with a well designed training plan. Large complex projects may require a first level of Training of Trainers (ToT) who will then cascade the training at the next level to their fieldwork team. Training takes place either at our Ile Ife offices or as near to the research site as possible. The latter solution allows us to pilot a research instrument under ideal test conditions.
General training workshops/seminars:
i) Research Methodology
As an offshoot of a renown university and a research based organisation, we cannot overemphasize our attachment to excellent research methods and ethics. Because we are a network of people from various disciplines, we constantly reaffirm the foundations of good research. These courses are provided not only to our members but to the general interested public.
