Web Survey Day (WSD18) held for the seventh time

On September 18, 2018, at the University of Ljubljana, the Faculty of Social Sciences hosted a Web Survey Day (WSD) event for the seventh time. WSD is an event organized by CDI since 2012 and is attended by more than 200 users of the online survey tool 1KA (www.1ka.en) and other users of online surveys. Therefore, the target audience is everyone who is interested in the latest achievements and trends in the methodology of online surveys.

In the introductory speech, dr. Vasja Vehovar, head of the Centre for Social Informatics, presented some global trends in online surveys, where he highlighted the problem of recruiting the general population and also closed populations, mainly due to the question of privacy or underperformance of cooperation. He also presented guidelines for the development of the 1KA tool in the future.

In the second lecture of the plenary part of the event, dr. Benjamin Lesjak from the Institute for Legal Solutions of the Information Society (IPRID), Datainfo.si, presented the problem of online surveys and the GDPR regulation. He pointed out some concrete examples of dilemmas or issues that, in the light of tough legislation on privacy (GDPR), are encountered in a specific field of online surveys.

The second part was followed by the introduction of the 1KA tool, where three thematic seminars were held in parallel, where the members of the CDI presented the different functionalities of the 1KA tool. Gregor Čehovin conducted a seminar called ‘A systematic overview of the main functionality of the 1KA tool’ which was intended for the beginner users. Miha Matjašič and Katja Zrim conducted a seminar for advanced users and presented the ‘Advanced and new functionalities’ of the 1KA tool. Peter Hrvatin presented several different ways of customized use of 1KA tool at the seminar ‘Installation, Integration, API and Custom Adjustments’. In addition to thematic seminars, the Methodological seminar was conducted simultaneously by dr. Nejc Berzelak. At the seminar, he presented some principles and trends related to online surveying as a method of data collection.
