New technologies for measuring non-health topics in longitudinal studies


Room 728 | UCL Institute of Education (link Map)
20 Bedford Way | London | WC1H 0AL | United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Student

Drawing on evidence from across the longitudinal studies in CLOSER, and beyond, this workshop will discuss evidence gathered to date on the use of new technologies to measure non-health topics. Examples of these new technologies include data collection using smartphone features (apps, GPS etc.), wearable devices and other types of monitors. That is, any methods that can be used to measure key variables more accurately, or perhaps in a less burdensome way, or to respond to new and emerging research needs in non-health areas. Building on presentations and discussions, the workshop will aim to identify innovative new technologies that can be used to generate new science, the implications for data quality, and key methodological research needs. This workshop is open to all those who may be interested in attending.
