Survey Design Workshop Series

Survey Design Workshop Series


Survey Design 1: General Overview of Survey Design

This workshop is the first in a three-part series on Survey Design. The focus of this workshop is to help researchers move from a general idea with a few hypotheses to developing survey questions. Questions covered will be closed- and open-ended and developed for different surveys (paper, telephone, online, and in person).

Workshop Topics:

Prerequisites: None.


Survey Design 2: Generating and Designing Paper Surveys

This workshop is the second in a three-part series on Survey Design. The focus of this workshop is to help researchers move from a list of survey questions to generating and designing the survey tool.

Workshop Topics:

  • Generating Paper Surveys
  • Flow of survey instrument
  • Appearance and ease of use
  • Length and cognitive burden
  • Catering to respondents

Prerequisites: None.


Survey Design 3: Generating and Designing Online Surveys with Qualtrics

This workshop is the third in a three-part series on Survey Design. The focus of this workshop is to help researchers move from a list of survey questions to generating and designing an online survey using Qualtrics.

Workshop Topics:

  • Generating Online Surveys
  • Flow of survey instrument
  • Appearance and ease of use
  • Length and cognitive burden
  • Catering to respondents

Prerequisites: None.

Logics & Logistics of Qualitative Research with NVivo Session

Logics & Logistics of Qualitative Research with NVivo Session


The Logics & Logistics of Qualitative Research

A Framework for Exploring Concepts, Dimensions, and Relationships in Qualitative Data using NVivo Research Software

Dr. LaRossa and Dr. Mandy Swygart-Hobaugh present this joint session. Dr. LaRossa discusses the steps involved in building theoretically-rich qualitative analyses (the logics) and Dr. Swygart-Hobaugh outlines the specific features of NVivo qualitative research software that complement and facilitate these analyses (the logistics).

NOTE: 

Mixed Methods Workshop

Mixed Methods Workshop


Mixed Methods: General Overview of Mixed Methods Research Design

This workshop is a general overview of mixed methods used in research. Mixed Methods Research Designs use a combination of qualitative and quantitative methods.

Workshop Topics:

  • Overview of Mixed Methods
  • Explanatory vs. Exploratory Design
  • Sequential and Concurrent Design
  • Triangulation Design

Prerequisites: None.

Social Networks (with Stata) Workshop Series

Social Networks Workshop (with Stata) Series


Networks 1: General Overview of Social Networks and Social Network Analysis

This workshop is the first of a three-part series on social network analysis. You will learn how to use social network analysis to examine the connections between individuals or groups both visually and through specific measurements.

Workshop Topics:

  • Social networks (defined)
  • Ego networks
  • Sociocentric networks
  • Network components

Prerequisites: None.


Networks 2: Analyzing Sociocentric Networks with Stata

This workshop is the second of a three-part series on social network analysis. You will learn how to use Stata to conduct social network analysis to examine sociocentric network data.

Workshop Topics: xam

  • Calculations for sociocentric networks
  • Generating network matrixes in Stata

Prerequisites: Networks 1 or basic knowledge of social networks.


Networks 3: Social Network Instrument Development and Data Collection

This workshop is the third of a three-part series on social network analysis. You will learn the development and implementation of social network data collection tools. This workshop is especially important for scholars who are interested in analyzing secondary social network data as well as collecting social network data.

Workshop Topics:

  • Instrument development
  • Sampling techniques
  • Data collection process
  • Data management and organization

Prerequisites: Networks 1 and 2 or foundational knowledge of social networks and social network analysis.
