In this workshop we will consider a number of methodological considerations when designing and implementing a social survey including sampling, developing survey questions, handling sensitive topics, retrospective questions and dealing with challenges such as non-response. The session will include a practical opportunity to use Qualtrics although students will need to have access to that software.
The delivery will be largely online and self-study. Students will be directed to video content and short readings/activities. There will be a dedicated online forum (Social?) to post questions during the workshop. the instructor (me!) will offer two live synchronous online slots to introduce the session (10-15 minutes) and run a Q&A of 1 hour at the end.
Delivered by Dr Alan Marshall, Senior Lecturer in Quantitative Methods, School of Social and Political Science, University of Edinburgh
