methods@manchester are pleased to welcome Irina Dimitriade for our latest Lunchtime Seminar:
Creating Meaning through Online Communities
Online communities are already an established method used in market research. Irina Dimitriade, Research Manager at Mustard Research, will hold a lunchtime seminar introducing you to this method of data collection and the most effective ways of using it to get the best out of your research participants.
She will talk you through all aspects of a research project that uses online communities:
• research design and set-up, including how to design your discussion guide and select the most suitable projective and creative techniques to use successfully in an online environment.
• fieldwork and data collection, including how to keep participants motivated and involved.
• analysis, reporting and how to make sense of immense amounts of data to deliver powerful stories to your audiences.
Irina will come equipped with practical tips and tricks on how to use online communities successfully and bring examples of projects that showcase this.
