I’m excited to be presenting the webinar “Advanced Topics in Survey Research” on Wednesday, May 21. This course is the follow-up to my October online course on basic survey research topics.

My new course is a great educational tool for professionals of all levels. Course attendees will learn more details about survey design compared to the first class in the sequence. We will dig deeper into the wording of questions and how potential respondents must be kept in mind when designing surveys that may be taken on smartphones.

After completing the webinar, you will be able to meet the following objectives:

  • Describe a mixed-mode survey.
  • Identify and provide solutions to threats to the internal reliability of a survey.
  • Formulate strategies to minimize different survey biases.
  • Describe how qualitative data can be represented quantitatively.

This course is a follow-up to my October 2013 webinar on Survey Research Basics. You can watch that presentation here.

I wanted to present this course because feedback from the first course suggested that participants wanted more details. To meet that need, this advanced course picks up where the introductory course left off.

I’m looking forward to the webinar, and I hope you will join me on Wednesday, May 21 from 3–4 p.m. EST. My course is being presented through the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET) and is free for IACET members ($45 for non-members). You can register here.

If you’d like to read more about Greenfield’s relationship with IACET, we’ve written about that before.

If you have any questions, please call IACET at 703-506-3275 or email info@iacet.org.

Thank you, and I’ll see you on May 21!
