Wed, Nov 02, 2016
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
SSRI-Gross Hall 230E
This workshop examines questionnaire design for online and paper questionnaires, such as screen layout and appearance, the use of images, and other aspects of the user interface which affect the accuracy of survey results. This course does not include programming, but focuses on the conceptual issues and considerations underpinning questionnaire design for online and paper designs. It also considers the design issues involved in combing such modes can be combined with other data collection modes, i.e., in-person or telephone. The workshop will conclude at 1:30, with a half-hour allotted after that time for Q&A.Registration required; please click "More Information" below to access the registration form.

Through Joshua Oppenheimer's footage of perpetrators of the 1965 Indonesian genocide, a family of survivors discovers how their son was murdered, as well as the identities of the killers. The documentary focuses on the youngest son, an optometrist named Adi, who decides to break the suffocating spell of submission and terror by doing something unimaginable in a society where the murderers remain in power: he confronts the men who killed his brother and, while testing their eyesight, asks them to accept responsibility for their actions. This unprecedented film initiates and bears witness to the collapse of fifty years of silence.

SSRI~ Workshop: Introduction to Qualtrics Survey Software

Wed, Oct 19, 2016
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
SSRI-Gross Hall 230E
This workshop offers an introduction to Qualtrics survey software, a package available (at no cost to researchers) for use across Duke's campus and medical center. This powerful, easy-to-use system is a great way to collect information online, whether as part of a research protocol or for administrative purposes such as program evaluation. This workshop will introduce participants to the Qualtrics system, demonstrate how to set up an account, create a questionnaire and access its results. It will also cover some basic tools that can be used to customize the questionnaire to fit your needs, such as using display and skip logic to collect more detailed information from a subset of your audience. The workshop is taught through the Duke Initiative on Survey Methodology (DISM) in collaboration with the Duke Office of Information Technology (OIT). Participants will receive a very brief overview of the consulting and other services DISM offers to help Duke researchers develop and conduct surveys.

SSRI~ Workshop: Qualitative Data Management Strategies and Techniques

2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
SSRI-Gross Hall 230E
Compared to survey research, data management strategies in qualitative research are often ad-hoc, and produced after the data collection process has been completed. Different qualitative methods produce different types of data and require different analytical approaches, yet there are several strategies worth considering for managing your data and can be planned and deployed prior to commencing data collection in order to facilitate the transition from data collection to data analysis. This workshop will cover a range of qualitative data management strategies in order to help researchers plan for data collection, or to help researchers manage data during or after the collection process. Some time will be given to the role of NVivo software in facilitating data management and preparing for data analysis.

Visualizing Qualitative Data (DVS Workshop Series)

Perkins 217
West Campus

So many of the tools that have been developed for data visualization focus on data that are in spreadsheet format, especially data that are number-heavy.  For qualitative research, numerical data may not be the primary focus, or the numerical data may be difficult to visualize for other reasons.  This workshop will explore some of the complications of trying to visualize qualitative data, walking through examples of different types of qualitative data projects and the visualizations that have been produced from those projects.  The workshop will include recommendations for tools that may be useful, but we will focus more on the process of finding the visual elements of a qualitative data project than on a specific software application.

This workshop offers an overview of program evaluation, or the systematic investigation of the merit, worth, or significance of a program. Topics covered will include: when and why to conduct evaluation; types of evaluations; key aspects of an evaluation, including logic model development, data sources and data collection, analysis and reporting, and guiding resultant programmatic change; and tips for feasibly and effectively implementing evaluation at a program or organization. This workshop focuses on evaluation from the perspective of programs or organizations and will be of particular interest to people working in such settings who are looking to learn more about evaluation, but it is also relevant to undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty, or other researchers who are interested in evaluation and applied research.
