• Workshops on EIDM

    The workshops combine the theory behind evidence-informed decision-making (EIDM) with discussions on how participants could effectively implement this in a government context.

  • Building Evidence Literacies

    Education must enable one to sift and weigh evidence, to discern the true from the false, the real from the unreal and the facts from the fiction. The function of education, therefore, is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically.
