I thought it would be useful to keep some sort of log of any large groups we invite on here. Whilst it is useful to invite gatekeepers such as conference organisers and providers of training, it is also probably best if we don’t all approach the same ones.6th March 2009 at 3:17 pm #6387
I emailed the National Centre for Research Methods (NCRM). They are renowned for their events and training. Hopefully they will use the site to advertise their info. I emailed ‘email@example.com’6th March 2009 at 3:18 pm #6386MithuParticipant

Thanks for this, Sarah. This will hopefully help me be a bit more organised on logging what I do:-)
I emailed Kandy Woodfield from Natcen and asked her to spread the news. I think she made herself a profile, so hopefully more will join.10th March 2009 at 11:31 am #6384

Wow you guys are keeping busy! Thanks for all of this – I’m running through a list of q’s and issues this afternoon to try and make sure we’ve at least looked at them all, even if they are not all a quick fix: will run through everything for the meeting on Friday later on too.

I sent out an invitation to Elizabeth Stutchbury who disseminates information about the Research Methods Day courses at Surrey University. I suggested she might like to update the events part of the site to include Surrey’s training courses.19th April 2009 at 8:41 pm #6376
Just to say that I am giving two presenations of my research this week to groups at Stanford. I have planned in a Methodspace plug at the end. So far I am providing a quick overview of the aims of the site and the facilities it provides. Of course I shall suggest people visit and join themselves. I am currently in two minds about mentioning the lower take-up of quantitative streams on the site.. but I am tending towards bringing this up. Both groups have strong quantitative backgrounds and being primarily graduate students, they might be interested in making their mark upon the site. What do you think?
My presentations are Monday and Wednesday, so I’ll try to work any feedback you might have into them if there is time.
looking forward to speaking this week,

I emailed Kirsty Johnson, head of Knowledge Transfer at the Economic and Social Research Council, asking her to post details on training that ESRC are organising in this area but also hoping that she might bring a contribution to the Knowledge Transfer group debates.30th April 2009 at 7:58 pm #6374
Good news. Liz Jackson, the Events Officer for the British Sociological Association got in touch today thanking me for drawing her attention to Methodspace. She confirmed that she thought it would be a great place for the BSA to advertise its events and said she would add Methodspace to their publicity file to ensure that they keep it up to date with events.
Fingers crossed, since the BSA are a great group to have actively engaged i think.
