The ‘Quantitative research design meetings’ meetings – organized and hosted by Statistical Advisor Kirsten Schutter– are meant for humanities staff that is interested in or is struggling with the quantitative component of their research designs. During this meetings researchers can present and discuss their ideas.

According to textbooks on research methodology, doing quantitative research is supposed to be a structured process, where you go through several consecutive steps to answer your research question. There is quite a lot of literature about the quantitative research process, research design and research methodology where theory is illustrated using so-called textbook examples. In practice, your situation often doesn’t look like any of those textbook examples, and you might feel a bit lost.

Grow wiser together

The aim of these meetings is to facilitate discussion between junior researchers, experienced researchers, and an expert to gain knowledge from each other and grow wiser together. We can answer questions like: How do I formulate a proper research question; Which variables do I measure and how do I measure them; Do I choose a within or between subjects design; Which statistical model do I use to analyze my data?

Sign up as presenter or participant

Are you interested to present your quantitative research design or to join as participant? Please sign up via k.schutter@uu.nl. Preferably, a presenter does not have a perfect picture of his/her research design yet or got stuck somewhere in the process. There is room for 2 presenters and 14 other participants.
