    • The world isn’t what it was a short time ago and our personal and professional lives have radically changed. Face to face options have disappeared from our qualitative connection toolbox and we're all now looking at virtual engagement.
    • Online approaches for qualitative research aren’t new to the industry, but they are less well understood by many people - practitioners, buyers and users. Each virtual approach, like each F2F one, requires skills to use it most successfully.
    • Karin Curran and Louisa Wood are two of the most experienced qualitative practitioners in NZ, both in “traditional” methods and in virtual / online approaches.  
    • Louisa and Karin are going to host a semi-structured live discussion about the implications of going virtual and answer questions that people have. This live discussion will be followed by an online discussion group the next week (the content will be tailored to the audience and the questions they have during the webinar).
    • We ask that you submit questions when you register. The presenters will go through as many as they can during the live session and use all questions to inform the setup of the online group.

    Register now! Choose Thursday webinar only, webinar plus the online discussion group the following week, or the online discussion group only. Separate invites for connecting will be sent for the webinar and the online discussion.

    ANNOUNCEMENT: Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 virus, this event has been postponed from 27th March to 12th August.

    Presented by Dr. Tadhg Daly and Kate Preston, Ministry of Justice.

    Tadhg and Kate both work on the analysis of the New Zealand Crime and Victims Survey, which is a nationwide, face-to-face, annual survey.

    It asks 8,000 randomly selected New Zealanders aged 15 years and over, about incidents of potential crime that they experienced in New Zealand over the last 12 months.

    Their presentation covers their data collection methods that achieve a strong 81% response rate, the survey methodology and its unique features, the data analysis, as well as the first survey results and their plans for future development.

    This session was presented at the 2019 RANZ Conference in Auckland.

    Please wait in the foyer on the ground floor to be collected from 11:50am.
    If you arrive after noon, please call Penny Turner on 021 223 2350 to gain access to level 13, as it is a locked floor.

    You are welcome to bring your lunch.
