    Introduction to Social Network Research and Analysis: Online https://dresa.org.au/events/introduction-to-social-network-research-and-analysis-online This course is designed for social researchers using qualitative and mixed methods. The course builds from the basic, pioneering methodologies of Social Network Analysis (SNA): survey-based egonet SNA and sociometric, "whole network' SNA, and their extensions, to network sensitive ethnographies, community networks, web-based network surveys and research on social media activities. The course reviews the possibilities for working with rich network data from interview or online sources and the unique perspectives that qualitative and social research traditions bring to these tasks. The course explores ways to best manage and explore different kinds of network data in Excel, uses UCINET and NetDraw to produce network diagrams and descriptive statistics. We review other appropriate software related to participants' needs. The course serves as a transition to the associated ACSPRI courses Network Analysis in Social, Business and Political Research and Big Data Analysis for Social Scientists. Network research designs covered in this course are: * Surveys using ego-centric network (egonet) methods * Network-sensitive ethnographies * Sociometric (‘round robin’) ‘whole network’ studies and small group research * Associational/ Affiliation (‘2-mode’) networks (including ethological studies) * Cognitive mapping and socio-cognitive mapping (SCM) For each methodology we consider the best ways to code and manage raw data, the most efficient formats for importing such data into visualisation and analysis software and appropriate measures and statistics for reporting findings. We also discuss the process of relating validated findings to broader research questions (‘meta-inference’), extrapolating them to other settings and associated questions of research design. 2023-01-16 09:30:00 UTC 2023-01-20 16:00:00 UTC ACSPRI Online Online ACSPRI info@acspri.org.au [] [] 12 workshop open_to_all social network researchSocial network analysisMixed MethodsQualitative ResearchQualitative methodssocial media data
  • Social Media Network and Text Analysis : Online

    6 - 8 February 2023

    Social Media Network and Text Analysis : Online https://dresa.org.au/events/social-media-network-and-text-analysis-online This course introduces participants to approaches for collecting and analysing network and text data from social media, (Twitter, YouTube and Reddit) and the WWW (hyperlink networks). In terms of analysis, the focus is on the application of social network analysis (SNA) and quantitative text analysis to online data. While the main software used in the course is R, we also introduce Gephi for advanced visualisation. Data collection is via the VOSON R Packages (VOSON Dashboard, vosonSML, voson.tcn). We also cover other important R packages for network and text analysis such as: igraph (network analysis and visualisation), quanteda (quantitative analysis of textual data), tidytext (text mining), and wordcloud (text word clouds). The course will be particularly useful to academics and PhD students who want to become more computationally literate, and those from technical disciplines (e.g. computer science, engineering, information science) who want to become more familiar with social science approaches to analysing social media data. The course will also be useful for people from industry and government whose work involves quantitative analysis of social media data, e.g. for marketing, social research, public relations, brand management, journalism, opinion analysis. 2023-02-06 09:30:00 UTC 2023-02-08 17:30:00 UTC ACSPRI Online, Australia Online Australia ACSPRI info@acspri.org.au [] [] 12 workshop open_to_all social network researchSocial network analysissocial media dataR statistical softwarequantitative
