Course description

This course will give practical tips and hands-on experience for designing and implementing surveys, for both academic purposes and the business/public sector. The structure of the course will parallel the steps taken when executing a survey: comparing the advantages and disadvantages of surveys versus other means of collecting social data; determining the specific purpose of the study and to whom the study applies; developing the content; and implementing the questionnaire. The lecturer draws upon current and past experiences as illustrations, and builds the lectures around practical exercises.

This course may not be run if there are fewer than 20 enrolments.
