Description

Aims of the Workshop

Drawing on evidence from across the longitudinal studies in CLOSER, and beyond, this workshop will discuss evidence gathered to date on the use of new technologies to measure non-health topics.

Examples of these new technologies include data collection using smartphone features (apps, GPS etc.), wearable devices and other types of monitors. That is, any methods that can be used to measure key variables more accurately, or perhaps in a less burdensome way, or to respond to new and emerging research needs in non-health areas.

Building on presentations and discussions, the workshop will aim to identify innovative new technologies that can be used to generate new science, the implications for data quality, and key methodological research needs.

This workshop is open to all those who may be interested in attending.

Provisional programme outline

The day will run from 09:30 – 15:30 with lunch and refreshments provided throughout the day.

Morning

The morning session will see guest lectures split over two sessions focused on active methods and passive methods to measure human interaction and the environment.

Afternoon

The afternoon session will also be split across two sessions with one focused on passive methods of using GPS based technologies and the second will see Mick Couper (University of Michigan) discussing the key research needs moving forward.
