Full day SIM Masterclass (7 hours)

Based on the flagship courses on social impact measurement (SIM) delivered by Daniel Fujiwara to the UK Government and the Government of Canada, this course is aimed at people who would like an in-depth introduction to SIM and how to use the Australian Social Value Bank (ASVB). The course will also provide people with the tools for assessing and critiquing the rigour of social impact studies.

SIM is concerned with assessing whether an intervention or action is in society’s best interests. Within this framework the measurement of social impact has three key elements which we will cover, together with a full introduction to the ASVB.

Course Outline:

1. Philosophy and ethics
This course provides an introduction to ethics for SIM with a focus on the ethical approach taken in best-practice SIM methods across the OECD, covering Cost-benefit analysis (CBA) and Cost-effectiveness analysis (CEA) as well as a discussion on other recently developed methods such as SROI.

2. Impact measurement
We will focus on the Rubin approach to impact analysis (as this is the most commonly used approach in the social sciences) and assess the validity of a wide range of methods covering experiments (randomised trials), quantitative methods (such as regression analysis, matching, and difference-in-difference analysis) and qualitative methods (such as focus groups, and expert juries).
3. Monetary valuation of outcomes
This stage focusses on monetary methods for valuation covering the three core methods: revealed preference valuation, stated preference valuation, and wellbeing valuation methods.
4. Australian Social Value Bank
The final part of the course will provide a full introduction to the Australian Social Value Bank (ASVB). The ASVB will be described in terms of the ethical approach, the impact methods and the valuation approaches discussed in the first part of the course so that participants get a full understanding of the rationale and rigour behind the ASVB.
The course will be delivered in an interactive way with plenty of opportunity for questions and debate. There is no pre-requisite for the course as it will provide a full introduction.
