Panel Presentation on the Impact of Social Distancing on Research Methods

Panel Presentation on the Impact of Social Distancing on Research Methods

The Research & Methods Special Interest Group will be hosting a panel presentation on June 11th at 7 pm Eastern (4 pm Pacific). The panel topic will be:

Impact of Social Distancing and Covid-19 on Research Methods and Topics: Panel Presentation

Panel members are all leaders within the Research and Methods Special Interest Group, and will discuss how social distancing and Covid-19 have impacted the use of different research methods. Additionally, members will discuss the emergence of potential topics unique to our current time of dealing with Covid. Please join us for this discussion, where the second half will be open for viewers to ask questions of the panel to promove further dialogue.

We invite you to join us for this unique discussion regarding how Covid and social distancing are impacting the research methods we use and how we see topics changing within our research areas. It has been clear to the panel members, and those within our Research & Methods SIG, that the global pandemic would have an impact in many areas of our daily lives. We watched our doctoral students and fellow researchers attempt to cope with the challenges, flowing with changes that at times seemed to come daily. As we are now several months into the pandemic, our goal is to start discussion how these changes have affected the research in which we engage, from topic selection to execution of the research method itself which we use to answer our respective research questions. The final section of the panel presentation will be open for audience to raise questions and additional topics for discussion. We look forward to seeing you there.
