Conducting Online Surveys: Methods, Platforms, and Ethical Considerations

Conducting Online Surveys: Methods, Platforms, and Ethical Considerations

Monday, February 10, 2020 - 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm

Anita Gordon, PhD, Director of Research Ethics, Office of Research & Sponsored Programs
Kristin Moser, PhD, Director of Institutional Research & Effectiveness
Megan Vogt-Kostner, M.A., Senior Research Analyst, Office of Institutional Research & Effectiveness

Designing an online survey can seem like a breeze at first, but if not done well, can leave you with bad data, small sample sizes, and breaches of privacy - at a minimum, wasting your time as well as those who participated. When designed well, online surveys can be an inexpensive, useful, and efficient way to obtain data for research and program assessment. In this session, presenters will offer guidance on how to effectively conduct online surveys, including how to invite participation to maximize response rates, and how to use the survey platforms available, with an emphasis on UNI's subscription program, Qualtrics. In addition, ethical considerations will be discussed in regard to design, recruitment, and data management. We will not be covering how to develop research questions or design content to answer them. The focus will be on the technical aspects of recruitment, data collection, and data management processes using electronic survey methods.

Claire Kovacs: The SisterSerpents’ Rage + Bodily Autonomy

Claire Kovacs: The SisterSerpents’ Rage + Bodily Autonomy

Tuesday, February 11, 2020 - 6:00 pm

The SisterSerpents slithered into being on July 4, 1989 as an anonymous, radical, feminist, art collective that was active in Chicago (and beyond) between 1989-1998. Made up a constantly shifting roster of women, they used a mixture of humor, creativity, and anger to shed light on and provoke discussion around a wide range issues related to misogyny. They curated exhibitions and performances, organized panels and discussions, wrote letters to the press, printed their own zine, and used guerrilla-style tactics to place their work around Chicago. Utilizing fierce, uncompromising, and intentionally aggressive language and practice, they asserted that “Our art is merely and marvelously our weapon.” This lecture situates their work in dialogue with their influences (The November Group and the Berlin Dadaists) and considers their resonance with contemporaneous artists (Guerrilla Girls, Barbara Kruger).
