Come to this session to learn how to use surveys well!
This session is designed in response to feedback from Victorian AES members that they’d like to learn about surveys. This session is on how to design, implement, analyse and report on surveys well.
The seminar will explore good survey design principles, how to use surveys along with other methods, and provide some tips on using surveys online and via phone technology.
As this is a broad topic, there will be a panel of three speakers to cover the areas of survey design; implementation; and analysis and reporting. Each speaker will draw examples from evaluations they’ve worked on.
Bring your questions about surveys. The evening will include time for breakout groups focused on practical problems.
