Event description

Description

Introduction to Survey Design is a 3-hour masterclass for people who design and deliver surveys.

The course is intended to be an introduction to survey design. It will help people to determine if and when a survey is the right approach, go over some survey design best practice and share some common survey pitfalls.

This masterclass would be particularly suited to those who are not experienced in designing surveys. Experienced quantitative researchers are less likely to derive new learnings from this course.

Attendees will be encouraged to take part in practical activities and share their own knowledge during group discussions.

The course will help you to:

  • Identify what surveys are good for.

  • Understand how to design and deliver better surveys.

  • Recognise how to avoid common pitfalls.

  • Learn how to have a dialogue with your team about surveys.

  • Think about the actions and motivations of those participating in your survey.

What this course won’t offer:

The course will not cover detailed information about how surveys can be used alongside other methods, or evaluate the different survey tools at your disposal. This masterclass will however, provide you with a solid foundation.

Attending the course is not in itself sufficient preparation for conducting more complex quantitative research.

Feedback:

As this is a pilot we will ask you for feedback, so we can shape the content for future sessions.

On the day:

If there is anything we can do to enable you to be able to fully participate in this course, contact the ucdcommunity@digital.cabinet-office.gov.uk.

Please bring something warm as the air-conditioning can be tricky! and you may want to bring a drink and a snack as there will be a short break during the afternoon.
