Volunteer Science is an organization that wants to make online methods of behavioral research widely available to researchers and engage people all over the world in behavioral science. They are running free, virtual workshops. Upcoming are, for example, a Review of Multiperson Experiments on October, 21st. In this workshop, they will give you a map of the types of group experiments across the social and behavioral sciences, including economics, political science, psychology, and network science. The workshops are organized on Zoom and can register for this workhop here. On November 18th there is a workshop on Doing Longitudinal Studies Online, for which you can register here.
Questions such as “Who we research, what we research, how we research, where we research, when we research, why we research, and even who are ‘we’?” have never been more critical for qualitative researchers to consider. The politics of the choices we make beyond basic methodological decisions are more meaningful today than ever before. Are we questioning the questions we use to organize what we do as researchers? Do we only justify our studies from gaps we construct from previous published research or can we justify the needs for our research outside the library? What motivates us to research? What hinders our researching efforts? How do we overcome barriers, biases, bullying, and bigotry? It is not only our research questions, but also our research objectives that matter: What are our goals?
Submissions are still accepted on a case-by-case basis and moreover you can register for the conference here.
