Designing data collection and analysis

Designing data collection and analysis

Learning Enhancement & Academic Development Service
Date: Monday 11 November 2019
Time: 12:00 - 14:00
Venue: Teaching Room, Southpark House
Category: Academic events
Speaker: Dr Michael McEwan

This session moves from formulating scholarship questions towards deciding how you'll answer them. What counts as data? What kind of data do you require in order to actually address the issue at hand, and how can you plan your data collection, management and analysis to make sure that's achievable – especially when the data might be of an unfamiliar form?

I’m from Arts / Social Sciences, and I’d come because: I'm not sure about collecting more quantitative data as part of my educational scholarship work.I’m from MVLS / Science & Engineering, and I’d come because scholarship of teaching and learning isn’t something I've done in my career, and I want some support in more social scientific research approaches.
