Upcoming MethodsNET-endorsed events (encouraging excellence, pluralism & not-for-profit)
The 27th edition of the Summer School organized by the Institute of Communication and Public Policy, Università della Svizzera italiana in close cooperation with FORS, the Swiss Centre of Expertise in the Social Sciences, is the first endorsed partner event of MethodsNET. As in previous years, it offers around twenty full-time workshops in two weekly sessions (in mid-August), ranging from Conducting a Grounded Theory Study to Designing and Conducting Social-scientific Experiments and Web Scraping and Data Mining with R.
Participants are PhD students, junior and senior researchers and practitioners from all over the world, working in a wide range of scientific disciplines: Psychology, Educational, Business Studies, Communication, Political Science, Sociology, Health Sciences, and many others.
All workshops are oriented towards practical applications and spend roughly half of the allocated ∼35 hours of tuition on applied work and exercises. There is ample time to discuss and try to solve problems related to the individual work and research projects with instructors and fellow participants. Whenever possible, participants are strongly encouraged to work on their own data and research problems to get the most out of the Summer School experience.
The Summer School instructors are renowned specialists and experienced and enthusiastic teachers in their respective fields, and they will organise their courses in order to optimise opportunities for practical help and advice during the workshops.
