10 Day Course: 27 June to 6 July 2016, 10 ETCS

Participants will learn how to plan, design, and implement high-quality web surveys and web forms to obtain relevant and accurate data for various purposes. The course primarily focuses on methodological and practical aspects of web surveys. It will elaborate all stages of web survey implementation from a methodological and practical point of view. This will equip participants with the knowledge needed to avoid errors in web survey data collection and inference to the target population. Where applicable, the covered topics will be extended to basic data collection based on other types of online forms (e.g. registrations, obtaining a feedback from participants, users, etc.). The course will be conducted as a combination of lectures, hands-on lab sessions, and individual project work.
