Organized by EGAP in association with Invest in Knowledge Malawi
February 13-17, 2017 Salima, Malawi
The Evidence in Governance and Politics (EGAP) network, in coordination with Invest in Knowledge (IKI) is organizing a Learning Days workshop for principal investigators (PIs) in Africa. This five-day event aims to spread the concepts and tools of experimental methodology for social science research. The workshop will cover sessions on key aspects in the design of experimental impact evaluations, presentations of experimental research, statistical exercises (with and without statistical software), and individual advisory sessions for participants to work on their own research designs. Key topics include causal inference, hypothesis testing, randomization, power, average treatment effects, non-compliance, and more. Accepted applicants will be expected to complete a brief preparatory exercise before arriving for the workshop.
