GPI Early Career Researchers Audit DSPI Oxford Lectures

ECRs Audit DSPI Lectures

GPI Early Career Researchers (ECRs) from around the world were thrilled to be given the opportunity to audit lectures delivered by lecturers from the Department of Social Policy and Intervention at the University of Oxford during the Michalemas term last year. The lectures included topics such as systematic reviews, evaluation methods, and social intervention. 

Feedback from some of our ECRs on the opportunity:

For someone from an LMIC country with limited access to classes in intervention science, the EBSIPE lectures were really exciting opportunities to widen my knowledge on intervention work. I was able to attend some of Professor Jane Barlow's Systematic Reviews classes. I read and cited Prof Barlow's works in some of my papers in graduate school so I was very motivated to attend her lectures. I learned about the different ways systematic reviews are conducted, how to come up with sound research questions, inclusion, and exclusion criteria -- things that I will always remember when I embark on my own systematic reviews work later on (hopefully!). Thank you so much for this rare opportunity to learn from experts. – Research Director & ECR, Philippines
managed to attend a few lectures last year and learnt a lot about RCTs which was very helpful as I’m currently working on an RCT. The lectures were clear and concepts were explained very well. Thank you for the opportunity to attend! – Research Project Manager & ECR, South Africa

I would like to express my gratitude for the opportunity of attending Dr Gardner's class last term. I find it useful in my current position in GPI. It helped me to have a better understanding of what we do, the theoretical and practical aspects, as well as knowing the technical terms. – Program Director and ECR, Philippines
