Keele Children's and Young People's Research Network

Online research methods webinar

We set up this webinar to provide ideas around how to take research online and how to work with a wider population pool than you might normally access in face-to-face settings. We have an array of speakers with expertise in varying aspects of carrying out research online with children and young people. We are particularly thrilled to have Marjorie Rhodes and Moira Dillon joining us from New York University who have been conducting research online for some time. We have also secured speakers who can offer some technical suggestions for overcoming the challenges of remote research.

There are three sessions which will run sequentially with dedicated time for discussions after short presentations from speakers. The meeting space will remain open for two weeks after the event to allow for further discussion and presentations will be recorded and available after the initial webinar.
