For those of you who are interested in developing context-based evidence,
realism is an emerging paradigm to explore. Realism asks: what works, for
whom, under what circumstances, and by what mechanisms.

For those who may be interested I will be hosting a four-day online
workshop: *Philosophy of Realist Evaluation, *on October 15th, 16th, 19th,
and 20th from 5:00pm – 8:00pm (BST). This workshop is suitable for people
new to realist methodology as well as experienced realist inquirers seeking
to improve their ability to think through, communicate, and debate
philosophical concepts related to Realist Evaluation.
The workshop will encourage participants in the effort to grasp fundamental
concepts related to Scientific Realism including Demi-Regularity,
Abduction, Retroduction, CMO configuration, Middle-Range Theory,
Abstraction, Emergence, Generative Causation and Counter-Factual logic.
Through workshop exercises and interaction, participants will practice
articulating and defending the realist approach and will become familiar
with a retroductive line of thinking. Strengthening one’s philosophical
foundation in realism can serve to resolve methodological issues and
improve analytical process in realist inquiry.
