Tracer Study AFriSIG Schools- Request imput

Voiced by Amazon Polly

Every year since 2013, the Association for Progressive Communications (APC) and the African Union Commission (initially through the NEPAD Agency) and, from 2016, Research ICT Africa, have organised an African School on Internet Governance (AfriSIG). This school brings together people from different African countries who are already involved in internet governance, or who are involved in some aspect of internet or communications policy and want to be involved in internet governance. Evaluations have been conducted after each of these events to obtain feedback on what worked well and what could be improved. In early 2017 APC conducted a tracer study to find out what had happened since to all those who participated in the first four AfriSIG schools and what their views about the value they gained from the School were at that point.

We are now doing a further tracer study, this time focusing on participants in the AfriSIG schools up to and including the school of 2019.

We are therefore emailing you as a participant, faculty member or resource person at one or more of these AfriSIG schools. We hope that you will agree to complete a short tracer study questionnaire. The majority of the questions are closed-ended (tick box) so that the questionnaire will not take a lot of your time. However, we also welcome any additional comments and feedback that you can give. If you have such feedback, please email it to [email protected]. You can also send any queries about the survey to this email address.

We ask for your name so that we have a record of who has already responded. We will, however, not use any personal information that is not already publicly available in the evaluation report.

Please respond to the questionnaire by Wednesday 26 March 2020.

Thank you very much

The AfriSIG Team

PS – Please distribute this call to your AfriSIG WhatsApp groups as well.
