Planning Research and Collecting Data

Alexandra Cooper

This workshop is designed for researchers who are planning to collect original data and considering how to select one or more methods for doing so.

The workshop begins with a review of effective and clear research question formulation and proceeds to a discussion of the advantages and opportunities, as well as limitations of various data collection methods (and associated analytic techniques), including survey research, in-depth interviewing, focus groups, and text analysis.

In addition, the workshop will attend to logistical and theoretical considerations in implementing each of these research approaches.
