"Introduction to Web Surveys" course from August 10 to August 14 - taught by Katja Lozar Manfreda and Nejc Berzelak

Aug 10 2015

Katja Lozar Manfreda and Nejc Berzelak from Faculty of Social Sciences (University of Ljubljana) will be teaching a course on implementing web surveys. The course will be held from August 10th to August 14th in Cologne, Germany. 

The course aims to offer participants general basic knowledge needed for implementation of high-quality web surveys. The course deals with the challenge of using the World Wide Web for survey data collection. Web surveys are technically easy to implement, however the understanding of underlying methodological principles is crucial for successful application in practice. Throughout the course, participants will learn the basics of these principles for all stages of the web survey process: pre-fielding (choosing the mode, sampling design, questionnaire preparation and testing, managerial aspects), fielding (nonresponse reduction, measurement, monitoring), and post-fielding (editing, archiving). Throughout the course, we will put a special emphasis on error sources that can compromise the quality of web survey data. Participants will also be introduced to 1KA (, a free open-source software, for implementing web surveys. They are encouraged to bring their own web survey projects to the class.
