Panel Debate: Big data, New skills

Upcoming SAGE Panel Debate at the 2016 RC33 Conference.

Big data, new skills: How will innovations in research methods and the new data environment impact teaching and research?

Stamford Court Main Hall

What is the panel debate?

Bringing together a panel of academic experts, this event will call upon the panelists to discuss the challenges and opportunities facing research and teaching skills in this new world of big data analytics. In this age of Big Data, new paradigms will be needed not only for research methodology, but also for study design and interpretation, cross-disciplinary collaboration, data curation and dissemination, visualization, replication, and research ethics.

This panel will explore the various ways in which teaching and research methods are being adapted and influenced by the vast number of new data sources and methodological innovations, as well as the changing demands of the field.

  • What impact will the changing data environment have on social research?
  • How are research methods changing because of these influences?
  • What developments are being seen in qualitative, quantitative and mixed methods teaching as a result?

We will explore these topics as we come to debate what the research of the future will look like and what teaching and research skills will be needed to address it.
