Clare Madge of
the Department of Geography, Henrietta O’Connor from the Centre for Labour
Market Studies and Jane Wellens from the University’s Learning and Teaching
Unit will begin work on the project, which has been funded as part of the
ESRC’s Research Methods Programme, in May 2004.
The aim of the
project is to provide the first training package in online research methods.
Given the growth and impact of the Internet in recent years, the value of
online methodologies is increasingly recognized by social scientists.
The training package will act as a self-supporting online resource, which will enhance understating of both the theoretical and practical aspects of online research methods, including web-based questionnaires and virtual interviews. The team hopes that the final product will be used by established academics, postgraduates, undergraduates and non-academic users working in the social science field.
