DECCMA’s sister project in the Collaborative Adaptation Research Initiative in Africa and Asia (CARIAA), Adaptation at Scale in Semi-Arid Regions (ASSAR) has launched a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on Research for Impact. The MOOC, available on Coursera, is convened by the University of Cape Town and Oxfam GB and comprises three main learning objectives:
Understand the key interwoven elements of Research for Impact in the context of development and adaptation research.
Identify the suite of activities involved in Research for Impact.
Appraise opportunities in your research plan through an Research for Impact lens and identify challenges applying a Research for Impact approach.
The 15 hour course with flexible deadlines is free to take (with a fee payable if you require a certificate) and includes experiences from the other CARIAA projects, including DECCMA.
