Capacity Building

Our web portal focuses on written descriptions of "how to proceed" when applying a method. We acknowledge that there are additional aspects to be considered – e.g. moderation skills, theoretical underpinnings, wordings, the combination and sequencing of methods - in order to enhance the usefulness of the methods for a specific research purpose and the quality of their results.

In this section, td-net will elaborate on further aspects of capacity building – complementing the profiles of the td-net toolbox and the experience reports.

This section is extended continuously.

Capacity building focusing on methods

In order to enhance learning effects, we link the online sources of the web portal with interpersonal exchange and mutual learning in 'offline' workshops. That fore, td-net and TdLab have developed several capacity building formats:

Please don’t hesitate to contact us, if you’re interested in providing capacity building workshops in your institution or network or if you have any suggestion on how to enrich this section.

Capacity building on transdisciplinary processes referring to methods

As methods are always means to an end, it may be instructive to first learn more about transdisciplinary processes and their aims in general, and then to link these learnings to specific examples of method application. You can do so in a MOOC, co-produced by td-net and several other institutions:
