Learning outcomes of this course include: 1) understanding the nature of the technology and what it takes to operate various types of digital sensors for research purposes; 2) knowing if and how sensors could be useful in your research; 3) understanding the ethical, consent, data security, confidentiality and other pastoral issues involved in fieldwork with sensors; and, 4) understanding basic analytic tools and techniques.
The course will offer a mixture of short presentations, interactive hands-on and exploratory sessions, group work and discussion, and you will receive a certificate of attendance.
Day 1 - noon – 5pm (10/09/20118)
Day 2 - 9am – 2:30pm (11/09/2018)
Prerequisite. The course is classified as ‘entry level’, meaning that we do not expect participants to have any prior experience of using digital sensors. However, we have designed the course for active researchers with dedicated research interests and experience in standard social science research methods.
