Description: Case study approaches are widely used in program evaluation. They facilitate an understanding of the way in which context mediates the influence of program and project interventions. This two-day workshop explored definitions, history, debates, distinctions, and design elements of effective case studies. Extensive part of the course was devoted to data analysis options and representation of case studies. Specific topics that were covered include: analysis framework, validity and trustworthiness of case study evidence, and synthesis and representation issues. The lectures were delivered as a combination of presentations and small group discussion and practical exercises. Ethical issues in case study evaluations were integrated throughout the presentation. Examples from practice were used for illustration purposes.
