  • Trends, Challenges and the Art of Survey Writing for Research: Online

    10 - 11 October 2022

    Trends, Challenges and the Art of Survey Writing for Research: Online https://dresa.org.au/events/trends-challenges-and-the-art-of-survey-writing-for-research-online We are in the middle of a data revolution. Research and decision-making in the private, not for profit and public sectors are not immune from these trends, and have become increasingly data-driven. Data collection is a significant part of this, and the use of surveys has become increasingly important to gather information on public opinion and consumer behaviour. However, there have been some high profile misses in recent years: the 2016 US Presidential election and Brexit being the most significant of these. What caused these errors, and can good survey design save us from making the same mistakes? Taught by an instructor with real-world experience as a campaign consultant, survey researcher and data scientist, this masterclass will focus on teaching you about survey design. We will explore how surveys can be effectively used to collect data for research, target campaigns and messaging, or design policy. You will be shown how modern survey research works, and sometimes doesn’t, how technology and social trends are changing survey research, and the best ways to write effective survey questions. It will provide you with the knowledge and skills to develop the survey instruments needed for data-driven research, decision making and advice. 2022-10-10 10:00:00 UTC 2022-10-11 16:00:00 UTC ACSPRI ACSPRI info@acspri.org.au [] [] 12 workshop open_to_all survey designsurvey researchsurvey instruments
  • Questionnaire Design: Online

    10 - 11 November 2022

    Questionnaire Design: Online https://dresa.org.au/events/questionnaire-design-online This two day workshop will focus on questionnaire design: types of questions, types of response categories, open versus closed ended questions, questionnaire layout and order of questions and questioning, common mistakes, pilot testing and specific issues such as “The importance of Cover Design.” The workshop includes practice designing the layout of surveys and practice critiquing and writing questions and responses. Topics that are covered include uses of surveys, constructing survey questions that are clear and unbiased, the need to match attitudinal or behavioral data collection with the purpose of the survey, and combining objective and open-ended questioning in order to enhance the usability of results. Types of data that can be collected in surveys will be covered, as well common mistakes made with surveys. The use of an internet survey tool will be demonstrated. 2022-11-10 10:00:00 UTC 2022-11-11 16:00:00 UTC ACSPRI ACSPRI info@acspri.org.au [] [] 12 workshop open_to_all Questionnaire designsurvey designsurvey instrumentssurvey research
