Expanding Your Data Collection Toolkit: Strategies for Understanding Human Experiences

12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time, Wednesday, March 22, 2023 via Zoom
Researchers are asking increasingly complex questions about the experiences and needs of people. To address these questions, new and emerging data collection methodologies are being developed and utilized. In this session, we will provide a brief overview of 10 data collection methodologies along with illustrative examples of their use in research. While we will focus primarily on research in education, these methodologies will have origins and applicability across various disciplines.  
Learning Objectives:  At the end of the program, participants will be able to
  1. Describe new and emerging data collection methodologies in education research
  2. Find research exemplifying various data collection methodologies
  3. Select strategies for answering human-centered questions
  4. Identify resources and references for additional support
Target Audience:  This program is designed for faculty, staff, preceptors, post-graduate trainees, and students.
