RAWM Digital community engagement programme: Session 3: Research - where is the data?
Digital community engagement session: 3 of 4
This set of 4 sessions is intended to provide Voluntary and Community Sector organisations (VCSOs) with an understanding of the tools and skills useful in gathering relevant data and presenting it so as to identify need and argue for resources.
'Open data’ is public data that is freely available be reused. In this context ‘open’ doesn’t just mean it can be accessed on a website e.g. as a PDF. It means the data is accessible in a format that allows it to be analysed, examined and combined with data from other sources.
Open data and open source tools e.g. Wikipedia, allows individuals and organisations to research and present their arguments in a more equal and fair manner.
Each session will be facilitated by a colleague with detailed experience of each tool/area so we look forward to some interesting and lively exchanges.
The Research session Wed Sept 16 is being facilitated by Matthew Green of Policyworks who uses research and design to help organisations do their thing even better
