Digital Transform MedEd Webinar - Lies, damned lies, and surveys: Designing better surveys for education and research
Led by Professor Anthony Artino, Professor and Associate Dean for Evaluation and Educational Research, The George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences Washington, DC, USA

The 2021-22 Digital Transform MedEd programme commences with Professor Artino's webinar which will discuss the challenge of designing and implementing high-quality, self-administered surveys.

Using empirical data and a series of examples from health care, education, and politics, Professor Artino will describe how survey results can be used to shape science and policy, often inappropriately. Professor Artino will provide insight into the cognitive processes that guide how respondents make sense of survey questions, and demonstrate what happens when these cognitive processes are ignored by educators and researchers.

Professor Artino will propose several design principles meant to improve surveys and introduce a seven-step process that front loads the survey-design process by focusing heavily on item development and pretesting.
