Evaluation of digital projects in the framework of the German-Turkish Youth Exchange
The evaluation covers the “New Pathways for German-Turkish Youth Exchange” initiated projects “20∞1 – Zukunftsfestival Almanya-Türkei,” “Youth-led City Partnerships,” and “Gaming and Youth Exchange.” The research design is focused on analyzing all three actions on the basis of their processes and results. After this, recommendations for action as well as optimization possibilities will be drafted, based on the research.
The methodological framework of the evaluation is a complex mixed-methods design. In the first step, theoretical data, obtained through document analysis, will be analyzed based on the research questions. These first results will flow into the next steps of data collection. The second step will consist of the triangulation of a) surveys gathering both quantitative and qualitative data, b) interviews with different actors, and c) participant observation of multiple workshops which are part of the projects.
Afterwards, the mass of empirical date will be used for an analysis, which includes comparative study, in order to answer the research questions at the heart of the evaluation.
