Event description
The Methods online series is being organised by PhD students at KCL to present and discuss ways of doing research online.

About this event

Many of us PhD students are researching and developing methods to suit our thesis projects; for some of us online formats are becoming a bigger part of our work in the pandemic. Some of us from DDH and CMCI at KCL have come together to organise a Methods Series on ‘doing research online’ for PhD students. This series of methods sessions is a way to draw on resources we have amongst ourselves to solve issues we are facing in our ( solitary) research.

We are thrilled to announce the second sessions which will be led by Myriam Fellous-Sigrist

30th October, 2.30-3.30 BST

Myriam Fellous-Sigrist presents her experience of conducting an online survey

In 2018 I started my fieldwork on digital oral history with an online survey. Oral history practitioners such as historians, archivists and museum curators were invited to answer; the questions focused on their experience of digital tools and ethical dilemmas. More than 100 anonymous completed questionnaires were submitted in both English and French; their analysis enabled me to prepare and contextualise the follow-up interviews I recorded in 2019.

In this presentation I will explain how I designed the survey with the free and secure software Online Surveys (; how I tested and translated the questionnaire; and then how I disseminated it and used the results to prepare the second stage of my fieldwork.
