Is online research just a fad, or here to stay?

Date: 22nd February

Time: 5:00 pm (GMT)

COVID forced many researchers to gather data online. For the first time, they discovered the benefits of larger samples and faster data collection.

But the potential for researchers to do new and brilliant things online doesn’t stop there. And now the pandemic is over, will they go back to the lab? Or embrace a new world of research possibilities?

Jo Evershed, Founder and CEO of Gorilla Experiment Builder, will kick off our webinar series with an exciting discussion about the future of research. You’ll learn about:

  • Cutting-edge research tech, from eye-tracking to multiplayer games and shopping simulations.
  • Common concerns around online research, including data quality and security.
  • Tips and tricks to help make your online research a success.

Looking to save time in your research processes? Need ideas for future grant proposals? Want to learn more about the latest research methods? Then you won’t want to miss this.

Where Do Users Draw the Line? Offensiveness and Content Moderation on Social Media

Date: 29th March

Time: 5:00 pm (GMT)

When is content on social media offensive enough to moderate?

Social media platforms do impose limits on what people can post. But where do users draw the line on offensive language? And what measures do they want to see implemented when content crosses the boundary of what’s deemed acceptable?

Join Franziska Pradel, a post-doctoral researcher at the Chair of Digital Governance, for a fascinating talk about content moderation on social media. You’ll learn about her research into how different types of offensive language change users’ content moderation preferences.

Discover her findings on the causal effects of uncivil, intolerant, and threatening language online - and when people want something to be done about it.

Places are limited. Reserve yours now.

Take advantage of this opportunity to learn from some of the best researchers in their fields.

Register for our first webinar with Jo Evershed on February 21st while places are still available. We look forward to seeing you there!
