Realist Methodology Online Tutoring and Education (ReMOTE) Workshop:

"Mechanisms and the CMO (context-mechanism-outcome) Configuration"

Delivered by:
Justin Jagosh, Ph.D
Director, Centre for Advancement in Realist Evaluation and Synthesis (CARES)

Description:
This workshop focuses on the concept of 'mechanism' and how it is used in the context-mechanism-outcome configuration. Mechanism has been defined by Pawson and Tilley as the way in which participants and stakeholders respond to resources. However it is common for people doing realist projects to experience confusion around the definition and use of this central concept.

In this workshop we will look at the origins of the mechanism concept for social science and the various ways in which it has been defined and operationalized in the key realist evaluation literature. Participants will also explore usages of the CMO configuration and how mechanisms fit therein. We will also learn how mechanisms can be theorized and tested, and their transferability to other settings and contexts.  An optional follow-up group consultation session will take place one week following the workshop.   

Instructions:
Participants can choose to register for either the training workshop + group consultation* (£195) or training workshop only (£125).

*Group consultation is a 2.5 hour session one week after the training workshop. In that session, each participant will receive a 20 minute consultation on their work-in-progress to ask questions and receive expert feedback based on workshop material and other questions. They will also be able to listen and partake in the consultation of others for vicarious learning. Please note that spaces for group consultations are limited.  

The workshop is open to anyone. Participants new to realist methodology can view the following video for an introductory overview in advance of the workshop: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=11&v=QrneOfFXzx0
