Composing the perfect research symphony – What are the key elements to conduct premium online qualitative research

1,991 views

Published on

It was only a couple of years ago that online qualitative studies were still approached skeptically by researchers. Today many case studies and publications illustrate that online qualitative research has become a valid methodology amongst many practitioners.

• Do we actually use the full potential that online qualitative research offers?
• How can we actually determine the quality of online qualitative research?
• Does the quality just lie in the eye of the observer? What works, what does not?

In this webinar, research and innovation consultant Nicole Reinhold will take you a step further and share with you her strategies to achieve high quality results by doing ‘activity-based’ online research.

As a specialist in research for innovation projects, Nicole creates customized research designs that creatively combine different type of research methodologies into one online study. Feeling like a sort of ‘composer’ of research designs, she will share with us some of her international ‘compositions.’

  25. 25. My reasons for doing online qualitative research:<br />. . . . . Doing research online let participants reflected about the research topic over time. By self-observing their own behavior / environment, participating in various activities, and in discussion with other respondents they create more insights for themselves and others. These insights manifest themselves in various content formats: text, links and visuals. They create therefore a rich set of data to report, inspire and inform all stakeholders of the project . . . . . .<br /> . . .than I hope soon you say <br />
  26. 26. Why SOCRATIZE?<br />Why SOCRATIZE?<br />. . . to go beyond the obvious,to find out more about the fundamental issues of a topic by probing and revisiting your 'knowledge’ . . . . <br /> (inspired by Socrates)<br />Thank You!<br />nicole@socratize.com<br />
