Webinar: The ONS Labour Force Survey Transformation Project - Designing a web-first approach to data collection

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) is transforming the way its surveys collect data. It is introducing an online mode, and designing for a web-first approach to mixed-mode collection, which brings challenges and opportunities.

This free webinar, organised by the UK Data Service in association with the SRA, will be presented by Alex Nolan, a Senior Researcher at ONS. Alex will describe how ONS is developing a respondent-centric approach to moving labour market survey data collection online.

Ethics in practice in innovative methods - the SRA Summer Event

Price for SRA members £40. Price for non-members £60

Innovation in research methods brings new ethical dilemmas. Research ethics committees can struggle to support researchers at the methodological frontiers. This afternoon event includes four expert speakers working with mobile methods, internet-based research, arts-based research and place-based research. Speakers will outline some of the ethical problems they encountered with these methods, and explain how they addressed those problems.

Systems perspectives on policy development and evaluation

Price for SRA members £75. Price for non-members £95

Public policies are about changing systems, but conventional approaches to their evaluation have largely ignored this insight. This conference will explore these issues with a number of leading thinkers and practitioners of systems approaches to policy development and evaluation.  Speakers include Diane Finegood, Simon Fraser University, Canada, an expert in systems thinking to tackle complex problems, and Zenda Ofir, a vastly experienced evaluator.
